Ken Larsen's Backgammon - LONE tactic     

  

Attack a lone rear checker to prevent it from escaping to the outfield.  Lone rear checkers can't anchor.

 

Prerequisite:  To execute this harassment it's best that you first establish an advanced anchor.

 

In the position shown red hits and points on gold's blot on 3 instead of hitting gold's other blot via 20/18/13* which would have been a 0.077 error.
