2021 - Position 60
Updated: Mar 30
Match Play. Red leads 6-0 to 7 (Crawford). How should Red play 64?
Long-term assets are very valuable in backgammon and this position clearly demonstrates that.
The correct move is 8/2*, 6/2 putting a second White checker on the bar while making the 2-pt. No other play comes close to making the 2-pt. All the plays that hit on the 14-pt are errors of one sort or another.
