Gaspar messaged me to say he will cube, so Herd has a decsion to make. He is out of contact for a while, so take your time  ;)

Just back form Montana and catching up...

He's ahead by 23 pips & on roll, has a better position with his broken 4-prime and the fact that he's escaped his runners while we still have two back, and he's threatening to hit one of our blots.  Position, race, and threats:  3 for 3 is a pass.  I don't think it's too good here, but it might be. I'll start a rollout. 

BTW, I think gaspar missed a cube last turn - I wasn't sure whether it was take or pass, so Kit's Law says it must be a double.  I'll roll that one out too.
