Match Play. Red trails 0-2 to 5. How should Red play 54?


Three plays are very close here. In third place comes 13/4 which was played over the board. This is not even an error, merely a small mistake.


Tied in first place are 13/9, 13/8 which forces White of his anchor if he wants to hit and the double falcon play 20/15, 20/16, with massive duplication and attempting to run for home while ahead in the race.


The key here is to understand that both plays are viable (did you even consider 20/15, 20/16?) and then make a choice between them. Not easy.
