Match Play. Blue leads 7-5 to 11. How should Blue play 33?
Apologies for the wrong score and question in the text yesterday. Most of you ignored the error!!
After entering and hitting, bar/22, 13/10* you must make an inner board point to increase your gammon chances. XG sees no difference between 8/5(2) and 6/3(2) for the other two threes. These two plays win about the same number of games as bar/22, 18/15, 13/10(2)*, but they win a much higher percentage of gammons.
At this score Blue would love to win an undoubled gammon with a quick blitz.
