we need 2 or 3 small donations a month, and an ad or 2 each month, consistently over the year, to keep the board going.....

After a couple more obvious moves we're here now... as often happens with small doubles there's a massive variety of moves, I've just picked a selection that include both trying to save the gammon efficiently and trying to maximise board strength. If your favourite's not listed, do say.


13/10(3), 8/5 for me, four crossovers.



Prior to this move we need 16 transitions to save gammon.  Making four transitions here reduces that to 12 which is within the realm of possibilities if we can leap out before  being closed out or enter early once he starts to bear off.

I don't think we can afford to waste a transition to build a better blockade.

13/10(3) 8/5
