2022 - Position 97

Match Play. Red trails 3-5 to 7. How should Red play 32?
Even in a money game slotting the 5-pt here is correct. That White blot on his 2-pt gives Red the freedom to play boldly.
At this score any play that does not slot the 5-pt is at least a blunder and sometimes much worse!
The best play is 8/5, 6/4. This leaves covering/return hitting fives and sixes, numbers that don’t enter from the bar if Red gets hit.
