Ken Larsen's Backgammon - PICKPASS tactic     

  

Pick and pass.  Hit a blot and keep going it's too dangerous to slot.  This is often done if your opponent is threatening mayhem on the other side of the board.

 

In the position shown 14/12, 13/12 would be a 0.117 blunder, and slotting the 4-point would be a 0.182 or worse blunder.
