HUGE bearoff mistake

Tue Oct 30, 2012 7:32 pm

Here is a common bearoff position that most beginners will get wrong without the slightest clue what a terrible mistake it is. This is why it is important to analyze your games so you can see mistakes that you would otherwise miss. Once you understand you should go to the ace point it is an easy move to remember next time and you dont needlessly lose a match because of this kind of mistake. If you move the 2 5/3 instead of 3/1 you will go from 53% chance of winning to 38%.
