Pure play? Is it the right idea here, and if so what *is* the pure play?

This came up otb at 3a5a, but I don't think score matters much so I've recast it as unlimited/no Jacoby.

  • What's the best play here?
  • What's the pure play?
  • If they are the same, why should you make the pure play here?
  • If not, why isn't pure play applicable?

I ask because I've shown it to a few players and a common response is "I'll make the pure play" but then they choose different plays as the pure one.





White is Player 2
