I’m not too sure about this one.My first thought was to launch another checker into the outfield with R = bar/23 20/15. We need to establish—and try to keep—outfield control. I would be comfortable with leaving three blots in the outer boards, but I cannot say the same thing about leaving a triple shot on the 23pt. Giving the Dillies an invitation to unstack and hit loose inside is an invitation they will gladly accept. For that reason, I opted to enter on the 20pt.
That left three ways to play the 2: 20/18, 13/11, or 10/8. A blot on the 18pt is not as valuable to us as a blot closer to the midpoint would be, so I eliminated that candidate. 10/8 is the safe play, but I chose 13/11. Leaving a blot on the 10pt risks getting hit when the Dillies roll a 64, but gives us a double shot at the escaping checker when they roll 54, 61, 62, or 63. In addition, by leaving a blot on the 10pt, we preserve the opportunity to make that point.
