**Grant Hoffman recommends: b/24 9/4***

As Neil said “it is really important to fight for key points” – therefore we want to use the 5 to play 9/4* so the 1 has to be played Bar/24.

**Neil Kazaross plays b/21* 24/21.**

An anchor on the 21 point is a nice thing to have as it cuts down on my gammon losses and isn’t easy to seriously block. Therefore I prefer making it and note that sometimes my blot in my board will be missed again.
