The choice seems to be between a)running with 21/15, b) slotting the back of the prime with 15/9.
My gut was to get a buy out of there, but the more I look at the slot, the better it looks. After slotting, if brown hits white has a lot of counterplay - a blot to shoot at from the bar, an advanced anchor, no exposed blots, and brown's runner still stuck behind a 5 prime.
11 shakes hit, while 16 shakes cover - nice odds.
OTOH, getting a guy out of there is probably a cube when brown misses the blot, while if white slots he probably can't cube until he makes the full prime at which point he's lost his market.
I'll still slot. 15/9
