Ken Larsen's Backgammon - EARLYBLOT tactic     

  

From page 193 of Backgammon Boot Camp:  If white hits black's blot, that checker get recirculated which should permit red to preserve his five prime for several rolls and kill gold's timing and cause gold's home board to crash.

 

Note:  The second, third, and fourth best moves are only marginally worse not big enough to be an error.

 

Similar tactics:  CRASH, RECYCLE
