Comment:
Cleary the best move here is 6/2, 3/off. All other candidates are considerably inferior to the top choice.
Note: Playing 6/2, 5/2 here (resulting in the well known 6(2), 5(2), 4(3) formation) would be a big mistake. Again it seems that bearing off one checker (like in position A) is clearly superior compared to the play of stripping the 5-and 6 points.
