I'm going to make the two point here.  The other option is 24/22 9/4.

The usual wisdom in a backgame is to make your points in order and emphasize mobility, and this advice argues for 24/22 9/4.  But this isn't really a backgame - it's more of a holding game although somewhat of an odd one.

So I'm going to make a fourth homeboard point and cover the blot, which seems more "normal" than leaving the blot uncovered.

9/2

Housekeeping note:  I'm off on another ski trip, this one to Canada.  There's supposed to be wi-fi at the condo, so I should be able to play along on my ipod touch.  But comments will be brief because I hate typing on the damned thing.

In other news, I'm doing a rollout of this play - anybody want to weigh on on the merits of my choice or alternatives?  I'll post the rollout later today.
