2021 - Position 198
Updated: Nov 25, 2021
Match play. Double Match Point. How should Red play 61?
This is a pay-me-now, pay-me-later problem and against a five-point board it is normally correct to pay later. This position is no exception, and the correct play is 14/7.
14/8, 3/2 and 14/8, 2/1 are also OK.
Any play involving 20/14 is a bad error.
I got this completely wrong over the board and moved 20/14, 2/1. Giving White seventeen hitting numbers is just way too many.
