> I think your rule of thumb is no good.
Ok. It comes from Lamford's book "Starting out in Backgammon" and he applies it to bearing in against an anchor with the midpoint yet to clear. I think it's good advice when restricted to those sorts of positions - i.e. when your opponent has a good chance of breaking contact, you need a decent racing lead to double.
Agree that I was using it in on overly-broad manner, and that it doesn't apply here. I still think it's a take - a 40 pip lead is surprisingly resilient - and the lack of market losers makes me say play on.
