And even then, I don't know enough to explain why the right play is the right play. So I'll leave this for someone better to try to tackle.

Leaving our blot on 5pt seems the best for this plan. 15/10 gives white 53 to hit which is duplicated with hitting on our 5pt. 13/11 gives white just 2 extra shots, but gives us a lot of covers and builders. 5/3 seems like a safer but much less effective way to contain the white checker.

But you have another winning idea, which is to trap White's checker behind a prime. To do that, you're going to have to take some risks to make the 5-point and 7-point. Playing 15/10 13/11 gives you plenty of numbers next turn to make the points. Playing 13/8 5/3 is much safer, (notice that 5-1 doesn't hit and 3-1 only hits if White exposes a 2nd checker), but it removes a checker from the 5-point and makes the long-term goal harder to achieve.

It is strong when missed but the pay off when hit seemed too high because I thought that with this many blots if the first was hit I would loose a lot more gammons. strangely that is not the case. It looses only 3% more gs than 13/8 5/3 the second play and is on par gammon wise with the main other plays. I suppose that once hit most of my losses are gammons anyway. 1 or 2 more blots does not change that significantly.
