Start to Finish: A Sample Game - In this episode, we take a look at a sample game from start to finish. We’ll see the benefits of aggressive play in the opening, and why passive play doesn’t work. We’ll also see how to trap your opponent by building a prime, and how to offer sound, aggressive doubles. In the endgame, we’ll see how you can use a big positional advantage to go for a gammon, instead of settling for just a simple win.
