Match Play. Red leads 4-0 to 7. How should Red play 41?
For money with a fully active cube hitting is correct. However, at this gammon save score 15/11, 5/4 is the better play, losing 4% of gammons instead of 23%. Three blots is just too many.
Winning a single game (19%) is good enough for Red as it gets him to the Crawford Game with his opponent on zero.
