We rolled a 3-1 and played the only legal move entering both checkers.

Blitzxz now has a cube decision to make.  Double or roll?

This isn't easy either. Normally I would roll without too much thinking but in this score gammons have extra value. My position just looks way too chaotic. Could I still have enough gammons for double? I certanly have some market losers. But forum also has 1-point anchor which could save some of the gammons or forum might get saviour from backgame. I have big lead in pips but only 1-point board. I think I roll, no double.

I hit, of course, 13/3* 8/3 and then 16/11 to keep the position as aggressive as possible. I'm going for double/pass or gammon here.
