This is a huge pass; a four prime is a pretty weak weapon against an anchor at the edge of it.

Now to the variants. With white off the bar and anchored on the ace point it's not even a double. White has both solid structure and timing.

White off the bar but not anchored is double and take. Blue has 11 checkers in the zone for quite a few gammons, but white's solid forward structure wins just enough single games to take.

Finally, a variant due to Robert: shifting blue anchor back one point -- will be posted later today when the rollout completes.
