Steifnu danced again with 2-4

The 6 isnt playing anywhere..so just the 2 to decide on.

i opt for 7-5. Take a small risk now to avoid a big problem later. It smoothes out our distribution which is good for our bearoff. It avoids jagoff scenarios like him entering with 1-X followed by our 6-5 ( if we make one of the other plays ).

I amost have to wonder, if you're afraid to take a 2 number risk when hes on the bar, what will you do when the genuine tough choices present themselves.

This is why I put this choice in..I wonder about this risk...it does leave room for the 1-6 to completely break our fairly sure game here. It might make the next roll easier if he doesnt roll 6-1, but is that risk really worth it?

With his 4 point board, if he does roll 6-1, we may well end up snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

75 for the same reasoning as Bob's
I would rather be villified for doing the right thing, than be praised for doing the wrong thing. -unknown, very likely it was me.
