 Post subject: Great example that shows me why I always play bad this situation. Thanks for explaning me why it was bad. Though, I do not completely agree (but I suck at BG) with Snowie about the best move: 7/5-7/1* I prefer the second one because it allows to cover with one more number. I explain myself. If we do 7/5-7/1* we can make the ace point with 5's or 4's if we are not hit (25/36 of the time) which is 20/36 of the time (so, 500/1296, not bad) Though, I'd rather prefer to use the 5's to bring the last men than to make the ace to not break my inner home. So, I am losing 9 combinations out of the 20. If we do 7/1*-6/4 we can cover the ace point with 3's and 6's (20/36 again) and we leave the 5's to escape. So, we do not loose combinations. Please tell me what it is wrong in my reasoning._________________If the brain were simple enough to be understood, we would be too stupid to understand it.
