Five Position Cube Quiz
Continuing with the theme of useful tools, I keep a collection of positions sorted by type. You might like to do this too if you find it useful. Today I have a little selection of positions that I have saved grouped together, although the connection isn't immediately obvious.
Score, 0-0 to 5. Blue on roll. Cube action?
Blue leads 3-0 to 9. White is on the bar. Cube action.
Black leads 2-0 to 7. Cube action?
Score 2-2 to 9. Black has two men on the bar. Cube action?
Black leads 2-1 to 7. Cube action?
All the players in the matches where I saw these are strong, expert or world class level. They didn't play these well, can you do better? If you get them all right you will see what links them.
Oh yes, which style of board do you prefer?
I'll come back to these very soon, so post some answers in the comments please!
Until the next time, enjoy the game!
