Comment:
The correct play is 6/off, 5/4 stripping the two highest points although the alternative 3/2 leaves no inner gap and smoothing the black checkers perfectly. This might be a surprising result, but preparing to clear the highest points still has priority. After 6/off, 5/4 black has only one horror shake (6-5) the next turn and 5-4 leaves only one blot. After 6/off, 3/2 black has 6-6, 5-5, 4-4 and 6-5- a total of five numbers which will produce a blot.
