Ken Larsen's Backgammon - HITPOINT tactic
Hit and point on a blot in your home board … even if it's on your 2-point.
Hitting and pointing is the most powerful kind of hit. Overlooking it is often a blunder.
In the position shown hitting and making the 2-point is better than making the 4-point and not hitting. Making the 4-point is 0.126 worse.
