2024 - Position 8

Updated: Jan 15



Match Play. Red leads 3-0 to 7. How should Red play 31?

Pay me now or pay me later?


It is not even close - paying now with 15/14, 15/12 is correct by a country mile.


6/3, 2/1 is a magnitude 3.5 blunder.


White’s board will improve and barring doubles Red will be breaking his 15-pt next time.


A large part of being successful at backgammon is learning to play the odds and then accepting defeat gracefully when you lose.
