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

I'm still not sure what the most 'pure play' is here, and XG isn't going to settle that. My own opinion is that slotting the four point while keeping the bar point is more pure than abandoning the bar point to make the four. That said, I don't think this is the sort of position where purity outweighs the usual concerns about safety, the race, etc.

My choice was to slot the four while bringing one down - this duplicates aces to hit so it is not as loose as it looks at first glance. But it's still too loose for XG.

Full rollout has 8/4 7/4 and 8/5 8/4 in a statistical tie with my play not too awful. Anything else is basically a blunder.
