2010-07-29 Match Play Answer

Over the board, my opponent hit me and made the ace.  That is a fine blitzing play, but blitzing is not the best game plan here, as White simply doesn't have enough ammunition to execute a proper blitz.  White needs more checkers in the zone (on his side of the board) in order to follow through with the blitz.  Once you select the proper game plan (strategy) then you are more likely to make the right play.
