2010-08-20 Tournament Play/Answer

The best play is to leave no blots, slot the 1 and 2 points.  White does not have timing to hold this position and will either crack his board or leave blots in your inner board.  Also, let's not forget the major Rule of Thumb:  when you are winning the race, race!

(Don't feel bad if you missed this, two Giants I showed this position to missed it, though MCG and Perry did get it right and for all the right reasons.)
