2023 - Position 122

Match Play. 0-0 to 5. How should Blue play 63?


It is easy to go wrong here - I did. I played 10/4,7/4. My opponent rolled 55 in response.


When your opponent has a single rear checker it is a good idea to block his escaping doubles.


After the correct 13/10, 13/7 White will need a 2 followed by a 5 to escape the broken prime. With 13/10, 13/7 Blue effectively creates two broken primes and that is a very powerful structure. 10/4, 7/4 is a bad blunder.


Lesson learnt!
