Ken Larsen's Backgammon - HOMEBOARD tactic     

  

Make points in your home board.  This will keep your opponent  on the bar if he's already there, or if you soon will put him there.

 

In the position shown the second best play, 13/8, 11/6, is a blunder at 0.095 worse.

 

High points are better than low points.
