Ken Larsen's Backgammon - DESPERATIONHIT tactic     


Desperation hit.  Sometimes you should hit, because if you don't hit, your opponent stands to benefit significantly.  It's "kill or be killed".


In the position shown Bar/17 is 0.100 worse.



  • Your opponent has a lone rear checker that is threating to escape to freedom.
  • You’re behind in the race.
