6-5 Answer

The right play is to slot your own bar point.   You are well behind in the race and that is a major reason why simply running is not your best option.   If you don't get hit, you have a good chance to make your bar point or use that checker to make a point in your inner board.  If you do get hit, you increase your chances of making an anchor in Red's inner board.  Note that even this early in the game, the pip count (race) is critical.
