Grant Hoffman recommends: 6/1 5/1

There are a lot of old school players who hate making the 1 point. They can sort of see it if your opponent has a blot there at the time but are loath to do it otherwise. Here we have to realise that making the 1 point, tidies up a blot and makes another inner board point when our opponent is on the bar.

The new players coming through do not have this bias. We had eleven 15-year-olds enter in the main event of the New Zealand backgammon champs last weekend. I played out a match with one of them for a warmup before the main event. I did it as a training event to help them. They were all commenting on the moves and it became very obvious that none of them had any hesitation about making the 1 point. It is only players of my generation that seem to have this bias. And it is great to see the younger generation coming through.

Neil Kazaross plays b/21 23/22.

There are two choices for my ace. 21/20 steps under the guns of three builders and prepares to make an anchor that is blocked my 6’s when my primary goal is just to run for home. B/21 23/22 is clear to me as best.

    the made 1 point argues for the blitz and the double tiger is in fashion. :-)
