The position looks right for a blitz. 10 checkers in the zone, we own a 5 pt anchor, and he has a blot in his homeboard. We're still behind in the race, so quietly making the four point won't do - all he has to do is escape the runner and he's way ahead.
I'm somewhat torn between hitting loose and making the four or simply pointing on his head. We went to all that trouble to slot the four,s it would be a shame if that checker wound up on the two. The four is a much better point to own, so I say make it, hit loose. The deciding factor is that he has 12 shakes that hit the blot while we'll have 20 to cover.
