2021 - Position 28

Updated: Feb 12, 2021


Money Play. How should Red play 31?

One blot, two blots or four blots?

One blot is the weakest play. 8/7*/4 leaves Red with too much work to do.

8/7*, 5/2 is the halfway house play, leaving only 61 and 62 to hit. That play is an error but not a blunder.

13/10, 8/7* leaves seven shots. Is the risk worth the reward? Yes, because if White fans Red will have a perfectly correct redouble that White will accept. That makes all the difference, especially as Red will win a gammon 16% of the time and scoop eight points.
