2023 - Position 145

Updated: Sep 6, 2023


Match Play. Blue 3-3 to 7. How should Blue play 11?

Given this position as a quiz problem a lot of people will find the right answer, 6/5(2), 4/3(2) – the only move that is not a blunder. It clears two pints and removes a lot of bad sequence. 6/5(2), 1/off(2) is second best but still a blunder.

As someone has already remarked, a point cleared is a point not to be feared and here you are clearing two points.

The key is to remember this technique for your own future games. It will reap dividends, believe me.
