In Episode 2, we’ll look at a 5-point match between two good players and see how they adjust their checker and cube play to the score. We’ll watch as the trailer tries to catch up by steering for gammonish positions, while the leader protects his lead with safe but strong plays. In the last game of the match, the trailer turns the match around by offering a great double while still an underdog!
