2022 - Position 85

Updated: May 10, 2022


Match Play. Red leads 5-0 to 11. How should Red play 42?

This is the continuation of the previous position. Should Red run for home or play quietly?

Ahead in the race logic perhaps says that running might be best but (a) that leaves 21 shots and (b) at best there will be only one return shot.

If Red plays 11/5 then even if the blot on the 22-pt is hit, there will nearly always be return shots.

For once the quiet play is correct. 11/5 is the right move. Running 22/16 is a borderline error.
