Prime or Hit?/ Answer

Making the prime is far better than hitting.   If you look at the "tip of the day" for today, you will get a Rule of Thumb that will help you in these kinds of positions in the future:

If you can make a 6-prime, it is USUALLY right to do so unless you can find a really good reason not to (good reasons might include: it’s a prime you would probably have to break; the alternative is hitting to win a lot more gammons or hitting to prevent your opponent from making an anchor.)
