2021 - Position 49

Money Play. How should Red play 61?
This type of position is often misplayed.
The correct play is bar/24, 13/7. This play unstacks the heavy midpoint and if the blot is not hit there are more cover numbers than after bar/24, 11/5. That play is technically an error, but only just.
Red needs his checkers to work for him and that is best done by bar/24, 13/7.
