2024 - Position 49

Updated: Mar 20



Match Play. Red leads 6-4 to 7 (post-Crawford). How should Red play 55?

Red needs to keep at least one checker in White’s home board for two reasons: (a) it creates somewhere to make an anchor and (b) he is behind in the race. Therefore, bar/10, 19/14, making a run for it is worse than a double bunder.

After bar/20, 8/3(2) the final five can be played 13/8, 20/15 or 19/14 with first play winning by a whisker.
