Hey guys, I'm still fairly new to backgammon, but have been playing pretty non stop lately and really enjoying it. This is prob a pretty basic spot but it kinda blew my mind when the computer was hitting me here (I'm black) when he had several opportunities. As expected based on that knowledge, my computer "hints" are advising me to stay put on opps 4 point instead of running.
Was hoping someone could give me some insight into this thought process, and also any recs on articles, books etc to read would be awesome. This is my first post in this forum so please also feel free to tell me if my format for posting sucks and how to do it better next time. Thanks!
