In Episode 8, I'll describe the finish of the game between Howard Ring and Mike Senkiewicz that we started last time. At the end of Episode 7, Senkiewicz had finally seized a clear advantage, so his first job was to decide when his advantage was big enough to double. Once it was clear that Ring was apparently committed to playing a backgame, Senk turned the cube and Ring took. Very quickly, however, Ring wiggled out of the backgame trap and managed to hit one of Senk's blots. As Senk stayed on the bar for several turns, Ring built his board and finally whipped the cube back to 4 when Senk had to take. The final phase of the game showed Ring trying to get his last checker home while Senk controlled the outfield and waited for a shot.
