2021 - Position 52

Updated: Mar 18, 2021


Money Play. How should Red play 11?

This was my biggest error in all the training games that I have played during lockdown.

I chose Bar/24, bar/22. That was a triple blunder. The problem with that move is that despite having six back checkers White can still win by going forwards.

The only move that is not a blunder is bar/24(2), 2/1(2)*. This play allows Red to (hopefully) move forwards again by taking a tempo away from White. Any other play risks it being Red who ends up playing the back game.
