2023 - Position 95
Updated: Jun 7
Match Play. 4-4 to 11. How should Blue play 52?
As those who have commented have said, Blue may never get another chance to hit a White blot. You must take the opportunity now. White’s 22 return shots are dangerous, but Blue could lose a gammon anyway in this position.
On White’s nine fanning numbers Blue has a redouble but only just.
Timidity has no place in backgammon – you must play 21/14* here. 8/6, 8/3 is a bad blunder.
