Comment:
Still best to strip the 6-and 5 point with 6/2, 5/4! Though the difference between the second best move 6/5, 3/off and the third best, 6/2 here is somewhat marginal.
Note: The most surprising result of this analysis (at least for me) is that the completely safe position (no bad rolls in this position on the next turn) which will occur after black plays 3/off, 3/2 is actually the sixth(!) best move in this position (equity diff. 0.111) and it is a blunder!
