Like you, I interpreted REW’s description of a “familiar baseline” as a position that comes up in play. For me, that eliminates 65S-55A-F-C and 51U-55A-F-C. That’s why I went with 6xS-55A-F-C. I understand there may still be some Middle Easterners who play an opening 51U, but, personally, I have never had it played against me.

I learned some time ago that 6xS-55A-F-C (where 6xS is 62S, 63S, or 64S) were all passes. When your blot is inside (on the 23pt, 21pt, or 20pt), it is an asset. Indeed, it is the first half of an anchor. When the blot is outside (on the 18pt), you do not have half an anchor. To make matters worse, the outside blot is a target. Even against 8-in-the-zone, you must pass.

51U-55A-F-C is ultimate test of this. Because the position is not complicated by a second blot in the outer board, it is a good position to test the theory described in the preceding paragraph.

Thanks for the link to Nack’s post. Good stuff, as always.
