Enter and run it to 17. Clear up one blot at least.

Re: 5-3 to play

Yeah, bar/17 for me too. Not only clears up a blot, but makes another point in the outfield to make it harder for him to bring his remaining checkers around to safety and creates connection for your position.

(I thought I answered this one last week. I guess I never hit enter before exiting. ??)
