**Grant Hoffman recommends: **

We are going to be attacked. Our only defense is to keep our board as strong as possible, so we have to play 13/10.

If we continue 10/9, we have diversified 3’s for Neil which are one of his few non-hitting numbers on his side of the board, therefore we have to play 4/3.

There is a storm coming, we need to hope we survive. 13/10 4/3 is our best chance to do so.

**Neil Kazaross plays 15/10.**

A difficult choice here. If my opponents had only a 3 point board, I’d quickly play 8/6 8/5 trying for to get a third checker back or possibly setting up a squeeze where they have to break anchor after hitting me. But their 4 point board has me doubting this plan. I went through all their rolls and looking ahead and I am just not sure.

I’ll wimp with 15/10.
