10/30/2010 4:57 PM, nori: Yes. I hit. why not? 1) If op anchors, there will be a lot of problems to win. 2) If we get hit back, there is an inner blot. 3) White has no priming potential, it is not terrible to get hit with white ace point contained we have much time to get out. 4) 5pt is great to have.
