Red to play 4-1

David Rockwell:  There isn't enough ammunition in the zone to complete a closeout.  Therefore, the most important task is to get the back checker moving.  In particular, a checker must be advanced to at least the three point in an attempt to anchor at a point where sixes can be used to escape.  By moving both back checkers, they can both escape with sixes.
