From Backgammon for Blood, by Bruce Becker
||White to play 6-6.|
Here too there is no choice as to your move: it’s two men from B1 to B7 and two men from B12 to W7.
Here, even more than with the 5-5 opener, you are virtually committed to a running game since you no longer hold a point in your opponent’s inner board. Therefore, play cautiously and try not to get hit; you have moved almost a third of the total forward game you need, and you should try to make the most of it.
