Ken Larsen's Backgammon - BLOCK tactic     


Block 6s … block opponent’s 6s and 5s.  This is particularly useful if the opponent has a lone rear checker.


· Making the 9-point and blocking 6s is preferred by 0.055 over making the 14-point.


If you have the opportunity to make one of two different points, make the one which blocks a high double by your opponent’s rear checkers.
