From The Backgammon Book, by Oswald Jacoby and John R. Crawford

White to play 6-6.

Make your bar point with two men from the black twelve point, and bring the men on the black five point to the black eleven point. You can’t do anything about the blot on your nine point, but it will be no tragedy if black hits him.
