2023 - Position 196

Updated: Dec 4, 2023


Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 5. How should Red play 51?

I am glad to see most people got this one right.

At this score, and facing eleven checkers in the zone, Red must play it tight with 24/23, 6/1.

If you change the score or make it a money game or move the cube, the answer changes. Such is the beauty of backgammon.
