And so the dice punish us for not hitting last time... found just about the only number that leads us into difficulty.

[spoiler]Either way White has a single shot at a great number - if we hit, 1's to come back on; if we don't, 6s to run away. The difference is that after the hit, he's still stuck behind a 5-prime rather than in a pretty decent holding game.[/spoiler]
