Match Play. Blue leads 7-5 to 11. How should Blue play 33?


With White having no board and lots of blots, Blue should play either the aggressive bar/22, 13/10*, 6/3(2), putting his checkers to work efficiently or bar/22, 13/10*, 8/5(2), but he must hit and make a home board point. If White return hits, then Blue, in turn, will also have a lot of return hits and his home board will be stronger than White’s.


It is a close call between the two plays but bar/22, 13/10*, 6/3(2) comes out just ahead. Making the 5-pt is not an error.
