Ken Larsen's Backgammon - LURE tactic     


Place blot(s) in front of an opponent's anchor in hopes of "luring" him into breaking it.


In the position shown, red could play safe via 8/4, 6/3, but that would be a blunder at -0.085.


Prerequisites:  Note that red has an advanced anchor and that gold has a weak blot-ridden home board.
