If we ignore the checker on the 11, even for the price of leaving a stacked 6, making the 5 is preferred on making the 4.

However, when adding the checker on the 11, I believe the weight shifts toward making the 4 because it carries many advantages: unstacking the 6 point, keeping a spare on the 8, having many point making numbers for the 5 or bar points (and also the 9 point which were duplicated with making the 4 point).

My guess is that making the 5 point is not too far behind. If that is the case, it should illustrate how many advantages are needed in order to prefer the 4 point on the 5 point, and that in general, making the 5 should be the default.
