Unlimited Games. How should Red play 33?
This one is not close. 21/15(2) gives Red a 3-pip lead in the race but most sixes will give White good chances in what is a close race.
13/7(2) gives Red a five-point broken prime where White will need a two and then a five or a six to escape. The pressure that five-point broken prime exerts far outweighs any problems Red may have in clearing his rear checkers.
Any play other than 13/7(2) is a triple blunder or worse. Take the prime!!
