Money Play. How should Play 53?


Once you find 10/2 the play becomes obvious. The key is to consider it as a candidate play.


If White hits he will still be behind a prime with much work to do. If White fans, Red can quickly complete a closeout and win a gammon.


Any move other than 10/2 is a double blunder.

Having doubled, 8/5.8/3 looks like the best play to me.

10/2. Anything else just looks too awkward.
