Blunder of the day #2

Sun May 15, 2011 6:03 am

Playing White rolled 6-5
Here I rolled 6-5 and missed the obvious play to make my bar point.
I just didnt see it. This happens usually when i have checkers in postions that are not common
in this case all those checkers on the 12 pt is unusual as usually the opponent checkers are there so it is often that i will miss a single checker there or just not compute the best play. It could be that I never before made this move of 65 to make my bar point. What was funny was the dice gave me a second chance rolling 65 again and i missed again ofcourse :o
