2022 - Position 84

Updated: May 16


XGID=-a---BDBB---bCb--cBcb---b-:0:0:1:33:0:0:0:7:10

 

Match Play. 0-0 to 7. How should Red play 33?


6/3(2) is very clear for two of the threes. It is too easy to play 18/15(2) because that play is safe with the other two but that is wrong.

 

The race will be even after the play and White’s position is awkward with two of his outer board points being stripped. Red should keep the pressure on those two points by keeping hold of White’s bar-point.

 

The only move that is not a blunder is 13/10(2), 6/3(2). Once you see the move it is obvious and so the trick is in seeing it as a candidate play in the first place.
