**Grant Hoffman recommends: 12/5**

We really want and need our 4 point in order to contain the checker we will hopefully hit. Therefore I would play 12/5 maximizing the number of builders aimed at it.

**Neil Kazaross plays 9/2.**

Two choices here, as I can either make a 5 stack on my 5 point or play 9/2. I’ve had some bad results making big stacks during the bearin when there’s this much contact and although placing a checker on the 2 point is not a good spot, I slightly prefer 9/2, as big stacks can be really inflexible.
