Position 23b, page 81
From The Backgammon Book, by Oswald Jacoby and John R. Crawford

White to play 6-5.

Move one man from his twelve point to your bar point and another to your eight point. The man on your bar point will be a blot, but there is no way to avoid leaving a blot somewhere; in such instances you should leave your blot where it will be of most use to you if not hit.
