Unlimited Games. How should Red play 41?


Firstly, we need to employ Robertie’s concept that the last rear checker must pay a premium to leave one’s home board. Therefore, the ace should be played 6/5*.


The four could be played 13/9 but Red has two rear checkers trapped behind a growing prime. He should take this opportunity to escape one of them with 22/18.


22/18, 6/5* is not without risks but Red is losing this game and that move gives him the best chance of turning the tables.
