    Money Play. How should Red play 43?

    Banana split time! Given this as a problem most people will find 9/5, 4/1* - White cannot be allowed his full roll.

    The question is would you find the play over board or would you play the prosaic 9/6, 9/5?

      I know what I want to play, and that is 9/5, 4/1*! And then turn the cube if White fans.
