2024 - Position 39

Updated: Mar 5



Match Play Red trails 2-3 to 7. How should Red play 53?

All the plays are very close here. 23/15 gives White the opportunity to roll a ruinous 3 but if Red doesn’t move the rear checker White has ruinous fours.


The other tactic is to knock White away from the edge of the prime with 8/3*. Then the best three would be 8/5 but that is only just ahead of 13/10 or 14/11.


Overall, the best play is 8/5*, 8/3 but it is very close between that, 13/10, 8/3* and 23/15.
