Comment:
There are some interesting candidate moves:
- Attacking/Blitz: 6/4(2) 3/1(2), making a three point board and putting the opponent on the bar.
- Build your board and maximize contact in the outfield: 20/18(2) 6/4(2). Switching from the golden anchor to the bar point increases the problems your opponent will face clearing the midpoint.
- Build board and spread builders in the outfield: 11/9 8/4 6/4, very flexible many good rolls next turn, if you got hit in the outfield, there is still the blot in White"s home board to shoot at.
- Build board and slot bar 11/7 6/4(2): the direct path to a strong prime.
- Make the bar 11/7(2): not really an option, this achieves not enough.
It turns out that the board building and spread your builders play is the winner. The reason is the blot in White"s home board,if this blot would be covered, things would change in favor of the "Build board an max contact" play.
