2024 - Position 32

Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 9 . How should Red play 61?


I often see positions like this one misplayed. Red runs 24/17, creating bad 64, 54 and 43 for White.

 

However, a little thought and you will see that 21/14 is the better play as this creates bad rolls of 31, 41, 51 and 61 for White and in addition it keeps the long-term security of White’s ace-point which might generate later shots for Red.

 

24/17 is an error. Trying for the best of both worlds with 24/18, 6/5, loses too many extra gammons to make it a viable alternative.
