**Grant Hoffman recommends: 7/3 5/3**

7/3 5/3 looks best. It leaves no shots from the bar, but still three builders to make the 2 point. We need a really compelling reason to pay now and it’s not here.

**Neil Kazaross plays b/23 8/3.**

It hardly matters, but still I refuse to strip the 6 point to slot my ace point when I need to cover my 4 point and my 2 point is open.

**Neil Kazaross plays 8/7 5/4 3/2(2).**

Now I can fill in my board making a 5 prime and try for a 6 prime or closed board.

**Neil Kazaross plays 8/1.**

Now with my board nearly closed I’ll slot my ace point with 8/1, as I will want a closed board if I somehow can hit a shot.
