2021 - Position 68
Updated: Apr 13
Match Play. Red leads 7-1 to 11. How should Red play 22?
Because of his strong home board Red should take some risks to increase his gammon chances.
24/20(2) is far too passive. He needs to keep the pressure on White’s blot on his 2-pt. The two real contenders are 24/16 and 24/18, 8/6 (duplicating sixes).
The rollouts have 24/16 as the winner by the narrowest of margins but it is too close to call. 24/20(2) is a bad mistake but not a blunder.
