Re: 6-3 to play

I will go with 24/18 21/18 to make the opponents bar. I will leave my 5 point for now, since only 55 and 53 will get white's back checker out safely. I should have lots of opportunity to hit/make points with all my builders.

Re: 6-3 to play

My first inclination was to play 11/5 8/5. Xtreme Gammon prefers 21/15 13/10*. I'll admit that I never even seriously considered that. I hope some experts chime in on what they think.


21/15 13/10* +0.489
11/5 8/5 +0.468
13/7 13/10* +0.381
24/18 21/18 +0.376
13/10* 10/4 +0.343
