Match Play. Red leads 3-2 to 11. How should Red play 53?


Bar/22, 9/4* is the wrong idea here, potentially letting White sent a fifth checker back and losing ground in the race.


Bar/20 is therefore mandatory with five. The question is then whether to create a spare with 23/20 or safety the blot with 9/6?


The 9-pt would be useful to Red so the blot should stay there. He is ahead in the race which indicates a racing strategy and so for both those reasons bar/20, 23/20 is the correct play. Bar/20, 9/6 is a small error.
