Comment:
Hero is slightly leading in the match and already doubled. Although the blitzing/priming game plan is the best plan here, we must reflect the fact, that 2-point can provide landing place for the second anchor and eventually lead to well timed backgame (Hero is 106 pips ahead)... For this reason the remaining blot must be hit at any cost! After this bold play, Opponent still have 4 checkers on the bar and undeveloped home board, which still provides strong blitzing potential. If we get hit by any other roll than 55, we have decreased backgame timing by 20-43 pips - we don't mind beeing hit when against early stage of backgame to prevent crunching of our position! Safe play is a huge blunder. Simultaneously, this position is an interesting exception from many rules of thumb including 5-point importance, prime breaking or leaving blots in our home board...
