6-2 to play, early game

Black to Play 6-2

Making 11pt would leave a blot on 15pt, but sometimes it is right thing to do. What is the criteria?

Make the 11 pt. Stick once told to never under estimate the value of making the 11. While 21/15 leaves a direct 3, it unstacks the midpoint instead of adding another checker to the already heavy stack and creating more diversity if you are missed.

If you are hit, unless it is double 3s, you will be facing a 1 point board to come back in.

I would play to the 13 point here because it's only 2 shots and the 11 point is not super important. If White had 2 men back and they were split, that would swing it the other way for me.

I'd make the 11pt because of race disadvantage and no structure (I want to start building one). Also, I look at the 15pt blot as another builder and gun (in case opp wants to run) for my outfield.
