Money Play. How should Red play 63?


Computers have taught us that the time to go with the rear checkers is when your opponent is on the bar and we can be much bolder about this than was thought possible in the pre-computer age.


The best play here is 22/16, 9/6. The three is played 9/6 to ensure that any hitting takes place on White’s side of the board and that White has to dismantle one of his stripped points in order to hit. The second best play is 22/13.
