Unlimited Games. How should Red play 41?
Red cannot just passively play 8/3. What will he do next turn? Also, he has given away the cube so must win the game with his checker play.
6/2*/1 is the wrong idea as it doesn’t really hamper White.
The choice is between 11/10*/6 and 11/10*/ 6/2*. The double hit gains more but risks more. Does the risk equal the reward? XG tells us that the two plays have virtually identical equities with the single blotting 11/10*/6 winning by a fraction.
There is more life after death with 11/10/6* so that would be my play.
