Re: What's Your Play?

I think I am doubling next turn. My play is 18/13, leaving minimum shots: 11 61 64.
On the second thought, 10/5 leaves even less.

Re: What's Your Play?

Well played! Your moves are the top 2 according to a GNU rollout.

I played the aggressive but apparently unwise move of 8/7 5/1*. It worked out for me as I backgammoned my opponent, but my pride was quickly dashed when I saw my game's ER was destroyed by that move.

As far as doubling - the game should have never made it to this roll - I should have doubled prior to rolling, and my opponent should have dropped.
