Match Play. Double Match Point. How should Red play 21?
At DMP killing checkers is a crime to be avoided.
Over the board Red played 6/3 but that is a blunder. White’s board is irreparably broken and Red must maximise contact and hitting potential. The correct play is 8/5, starting the point that Red really wants to make.
8/5. White's board has crunched and there is a blot exposed. Given that red is behind in the race, any other play looks more destructive.
