In Episode 5, we’ll look at the first game of a 5-point match which was decided in two exciting games. Game 1 involved many difficult early plays which eventually led to a small advantage for Black. Although he doubled prematurely, he followed up his double with a great shot which gave him excellent gammon chances. In the latter part of the game, Black played aggressively for a gammon while White tried to maintain his board and save the gammon with a late hit.
