Position 65, page 145
From The Backgammon Book, by Oswald Jacoby and John R. Crawford

White to play 6-3.

If you have more than two men on the one point, the extra men are just liabilities for you. Each extra man just increases your chance of losing a gammon or a backgammon, so try to get all but two men off that point. If you can move an odd man to another point in black’s board where it represents an additional threat against black’s men, do so. Otherwise, just get those extra men out of the black inner board as fast as you can.

You may be gammoned; you may even be backgammoned; but if black’s next roll happens to be 6-5, he will have to leave blots on his six and five points and you will then be a favorite to win the game, since you will hit at least one blot if your next roll is anything except double 6, double 3, or 6-3.
