Comment:
Timing is very bad, gammons are meaningless (one-pointer) so trying to improve the timing has top priority. So either 8/4* 3/2* (three blots in the home board) or 6/2* 5/4* (four blots in the home board) are the best moves. Making the 8-point and hoping to prime the opponent will not often enough work out.
