• 2018 - Position 29


    Money Play. How should Red play 41?

    Unless you are given this position as a quiz problem you will never look at 6/5*, 6/2 but that play swaps 5.5% losses for an additional 15% gammon wins - a good trade.

    4/off, 1/off is not an error but the important thing is to at least see 6/5*, 6/2 as a candidate play even if you decide not to play it.
