5-2 to play

White - Pips 146 (+25)

Black - Pips 121 (-25)
Black to Play 5-2
Created with Diagram Builder


Attack or not?
Black almost escaped (1 back vs 2 back), has big race lead, the boards are even.
On the other hand, there is not much constructive that can be done with this roll.

What is you play and why?

Re: 5-2 to play

The only non-hit to play is 13/11 13/8. I don't like disconnecting my back checker, though. That leaves hitting 6/1, but what to do with the 2? I go with 11/9 to improve the coverage of my inner board.

I agree, hit and 11/9. Looks really strong to me. Gammon the wretch!
