The Big Quiz, part 10
8/2, 6/2, looks obvious and it is absolutely correct. 1 point for that. I made the rather horrid play of 16/10, 13/9, which is consistent with my previous blunders in this game. I seem to have been obsessed with making the points in order and rolling a prime home, but it's a blitz and the way to blitz is to keep making points. How did I play this game so badly is the question that I need to ask myself and it's fairly clear that I wasn't concentrating and certainly wasn't bothering to count shots! Two rolls later I came down to this next position and you won't be surprised by now to hear that I got this wrong as well.

Score 1-1 to 5, White has the cube and it's Blue to play 6-3. Let's hear why you want to make your play please, every useful to all of us. Until tomorrow, enjoy the game!
