Dizzy with the Quizzy

I went through all the 2nd rolls and picked out what I thought were the most commonly misplayed, then added a few more in there so you don't think "QF" for every one of them and get them right ;) I'll agree up front some of them may be debatable, but for the most part I tried to pick plays where, for replies at least, the difference in plays was not only significant but I could pinpoint the reasoning behind the best play. The answers/rollouts are already posted of course but try taking them without looking, see how much equity you may be giving up early on.

I also plan in Michigan to watch a lot of backgammon and note opening moves/replies/maybe even 3rd rolls where I think Open Division players are butchering things so early. I will make sure the match score has no effect and report back. (or if it does and they blow it even moreso) This is a warning for Chuck, Mary, Chris, anyone else who might be there, if you see me watching, BE SCARED...I'll be talking about YOU!
