Hit loose on the 4pt, and then choose between covering and making the 5pt. I became interested in this sort of position early last year, and soon thereafter stumbled upon the principle so nicely elucidated by Nack. I have been looking for exceptions (as well as positions that conform) ever since.

If you have any rollouts of positions where the same issues are at stake, please post them here and/or send me your files. Either way, Iíll credit you and add them to the RolloutSummary spreadsheet that I distribute periodically. Thanks.

The guideline is simple: donít strip your 6pt and simulateously hit loose on the 4pt. Scanning through the current edition of the RolloutSummary, I find only one or two exceptions: a couple of DMP positions that are tied, one late middle-game setup that does not really qualify, and one with a lousy 62$ opening misplayed for money (62$-32S-11). I am posting one of the DMP rollouts here.

Nactation Correction: The nacbracs for the third position in Nackís post should be:

64S-61P-52U-51H-44P-21 [P I11] "&e.

Thatís the diagram that immediately follows his signature. When both dice are played within the inner board, the correct Nactation family is I (Inside). The A (Attack) family is used when only one die is played within the inner board, while the other die jumps over the bar to get into the inner board. The A family is properly used in the final diagram of Nackís post.
