From The Backgammon Book, by Oswald Jacoby and John R. Crawford
||White to play 5-5.|
Black has played his opening 6-3 by running all the way with a back man to your ten point.
Move two men each from your eight and six points, making your three and one points. You hit his blot on your one point as you do this. In general, you should play double 5 this way any time that you can “point on a blot” (hit a blot and make that point in the same throw).
