2022 – Position 103
Match Play. Red trails 1-4 (Crawford) to 5. How should Red play 51?
Red needs to take this opportunity to clear his outer board points.
8/7, 6/1 leaves no shots but two stripped outer board points which should set alarm bells ringing.
8/3, 6/5 is better but only the third best move.
The best move is 8/7, 8/3, starting to clear the most difficult point and giving perfect duplication of fours and sixes. This the right moment to take a risk.
