The choice for me here seems to be do I put two on the bar, or just the one?  13-7*, 7-2* is tempting but leaves a vulnerable blot rather deep.  If hit back, I might get an immediate return shot  but could just as easily dance, or simply come in and then be stuck, isolated and vulnerable to a close out.  Think I'll go for just the one hit, leaving an indirect shot.  13-7*, 13-8.

Oops!  Shurely shome mishtake here!  Got the position wrongly set up on my board, sorry.  Then I couldn't modify.  Anyway, I still want to make the same move but for different reasons.  Making the bar point is a must and I can't see much point in playing behind with the 5, so 13-7, 13-8 it is.
