Ken Larsen's Backgammon - EDGE tactic     

  

Move up to the edge of a budding prime.  This is particularly important if you only have a lone rear checker, the race is close, and/or your opponent doesn't have a lot of checkers poised to attack your checker.

 

Anything that doesn't include 24/23 is a blunder.

 

Criteria:

You’re stuck behind a prime.
