loser - I will have to take

   BAR: O-0 X-0   OFF: O-0 X-0   Cube: 1  turn: Ivan

Ivan says: I double because I have market losers AND I have the advantage
(you don't always have both at the same time)

Ivan doubles.

stefanp accepts the double.
Ivan rolls 6 and 1.

Ivan says: It's a 1pt gammonless, cubeless match. If I prime (12-18 17-
18), he is better placed for priming me. If I hit, I have a chance at
hitting the 16pt man. Plus I have a point made and two men back

stefanp says: He misses but makes his bar point. I now play with one man
back

stefanp rolls 3 and 2.

stefanp says: I must make the 16pt man safe and hope his blitz doesn't
work - the blot on the 1 point is a liability for him now

Ivan says: The action is all in my board at the moment, which is fine by
me. I have to aggress here, no choice

Ivan rolls 3 and 2.

Ivan says: But I can't with that roll. I simply make 17pt and focus on
hitting the 23pt man next roll unless he safeties

stefanp says: 12-17 is clear - making 24pt leaves me a direct shot

Ivan moves 12-15 15-17 .
