Ken Larsen's Backgammon - AVOID6 tactic     

  

Avoid making points 6 points apart.  They can't be part of the same prime.  Mike Corbett calls them "superfluous".

 

·  6/5(2), 3/2(2) is 0.025 worse

 

 

See the HITPOINT tactic.  That shows an example where making points six pips apart is recommended [because you’re hitting a blot].
