**Grant Hoffman recommends: 12/5**

We are ahead in the race, with Neil having 2 checkers behind our 4 prime and we have 2 checkers behind his broken 4 prime. Notice that we are at the edge of the prime with 2 numbers which allow us to escape while Neil only has one direct number that allows him to escape.

I do not want to do anything to risk being hit so I would just play the quiet 12/5.

**Neil Kazaross plays 11/7(4).**

11/7(4) is a nice natural play with this fine roll, giving me a 5 prime with some spares to handle upcoming rolls, or to be builders should they decide to run a checker.
