**Grant Hoffman recommends: 16/10 13/8**

16/5 looks tempting but why leave 2 rolls that let Neil escape and puts us on the bar. It is still a good roll for Neil after we play 16/10 13/8 but now we would not be on the bar and can attack his remaining checker.

If we are to leave extra shots, we need to see a clear benefit. Here I see only the downside so let’s skip 16/5 and play 16/10 13/8.”

**Neil Kazaross plays 5/2 3/1.**

I think I should save a 4 so I can hang onto my anchor with 41 and 42 next turn so as not to have two checkers exposed to a 15 checker attack.
