In this episode, I’ll finish the long game between Nack Ballard and I that started in Episode 2. After doubling, I was able to pin Nack into a difficult 3-point game while his outside points collapsed. I’ll explain how you can play to maximize your gammon chances in these positions, a useful technique that can win you many extra points against unwary opponents. Although my plan seemed to work, Nack was able to enter three checkers from the bat with a miracle 6-6, after which I had to work hard to win the game one final time.
