3-3 to play

Black to Play 3-3
Created with www.BGdiagram.com

11/5 8/5 23/20 Makes 5pt and splits
13/10 11/5 8/5 Makes 5pt and bring a good builder
3(2) 10(2) makes 2 points and create good potential to make more

What is the priority?

Re: 3-3 to play

Let's start with 11/5 8/5. This is a common position where you can make the 5-point with poor distribution (stacked 6 & stripped 8), or make the 3-point with good distribution. However, the 5-point is so much stronger than the 3-point that it usually trumps poor distribution, so go ahead and grab it.

The last choice is then 23/20 or 13/10. Putting a builder on the 10 is often useful, but it's less useful here because the 8-point is stripped. A lot of your building rolls now involve breaking the 8-point, so they're less strong. Meanwhile the 20-point is now the best point on the board, so let's start it and see what happens.
