second. But here, X has four checkers behind O's five-prime, and

urgently needs to escape before collapsing. So 24/21 is a must,

and then the question is whether leaving the 5pt slotted (hoping to

make it) is worth the risk of getting it sent back. Again, under

"normal" blitz conditions, the gain of making the 5pt might be

worth the risk of leaving a direct shot, but here, XG says it's a

whopper with cheese to play 24/21 13/11.

If X didn't have so many checkers boxed in behind O's prime then

the decision would be a lot more complicated (see variant).
