2022- Position 208

Updated: Dec 21, 2022


Match Play. Red leads 6-5 to 7 (Crawford). How should Red play 11?

This is a very difficult problem. There are only two moves to consider, bar/23(2) and bar/24(2), 6/5(2). Everything else is a double blunder or worse.

Balancing more gammon losses against more wins is not easy, especially over the board.

In the end I chose bar/23(2). This turns out to be a 0.016 mistake and bar/24(2), 6/5(2) is best – the more positive play winning out. It swaps 4% more wins against 3% more gammon losses.

How did you do?
