3-2 Falafel/Stick Answer

Falafel is clearly one of the best players in the world, but even he makes mistakes, as he did on this play in a recent match against Stick.  Falafel hit, and it's simply best to make the 5 point here.  Red has more points in his board and 3 points shooting at Red's blot on the 5 point, so any number that comes in and hits loose will put tremendous pressure on Blue to roll a 5.  If he doesn't, he's toast.

The 5 point is the Golden Point, and just as it is important to make your own 5 point, it's also important to make your opponent's.
