Ken Larsen's Backgammon - ANCHORX tactic     

  

Anchor prevention Stop opponent from anchoring.  If opponent already has an anchor, don't allow him to establish a second anchor.  If he has a second anchor, don't allow him to establish a third anchor.  ANCHORX mainly involves hitting blots that could be turned into anchors or passing on hitting a blot that the opponent is trying to recycle.

 

Preventing an opponent from anchoring is often more important than making an anchor of your own.

 

Bar/20, 23/20 is 0.100 worse.
