2024 - Position 21

Updated: Feb 6



Match Play. Red leads 5-4 to 7. How should Red play 11?

For once I’ll let one of those commented provide the answer. My thanks to Leo for this explanation:


“8/7(2),6/5(2). What are the priorities? Making the anchor looks fine, but you are behind in the race, you have a better board than White at the moment, and that goalkeeper is important to maintain contact. The priority looks like containing white's back checker, hence my move.”


I will just add that an undoubled gammon gives Red the match and 8/7(2), 6/5(2) wins both more game and more gammons than 24/20.
