Steifnu didnt want to entertain the possibility of a recube..for his own reasons, no doubt  ;)

Then he sadly rolled 5-3 and danced..so Herd is up again.

There are really only two moves to choose from here, so what are the choices..and which is best ?

If we slot the bar point we're 11/36 to cover it next roll while he's only 2/36 to hit.  Add in 64 that covers the ace and we've got 13/36 to ice the gammon.  It also gives us a double shot at whacking on the ace if he enters.  Seems clear.  If we're hit, we're still way ahead.

8/2 8/7

OK Diane, it's time to roll me that 16 joker.  Oh, and just in case you were thinking of testing my sanity, no double !
