2022 - Position 42

Updated: Mar 8, 2022


Match Play. Red leads 1-0 to 5. How should Red play 44?

At four points away Red would like to win a doubled gammon in this position.

White’s board is no threat and so Red should make his best offensive point, his 5-pt. 13/5(2) is the best play. 24/16(2) is a bad error. Everything else is a blunder. 13/5(2) leads to a 10% increase in gammons over 24/1692) - a not insignificant difference.
