Ken Larsen's Backgammon - WIDENET tactic     

  

 

A wide net catches more fish.  Spread rear checkers to increase chances of hitting your opponent as he races for home.

 

In the position shown, anything not involving 21/16 is a blunder of at least 0.101.

 

Prerequisites: 

  1. You are behind in the race.
  2. Your opponent's home board is weak.
