Money Play. How should Red play 41?


Attacking here with 8/4*, 22/21 is too wide open.


Red should play to establish a high anchor to equalise the game. The correct play is 24/20, 22/21. Any other play is at least an error.


The key to this problem is selecting the right game plan.

Red needs an advanced anchor, and while he has a home board advantage, this might be the time to try and get it. 24/20,22/21.

8/4*, 22/21. When in doubt, send the marines!
