Comment:
Playing 6/3 and 6/4, 5/4 with the 2-1 has the same strength. Also good is moving 6/4, 3/2 (smoothing the checkers). The four best choices with this roll are all very close together.
Note: Nevertheless it seems that with a roll containing an ace trying to clear the highest points (with a roll containing an ace) quickly is always one of the best choices.
