That is 9/12 already, only three episodes to go!
Somehow I had missed this episode. Nice to remind us of the Monty Hall problem about update the beliefs about the piece that could have captured but didn't. Had never realized this trick, will try it out!
Anyway, I wonder what your advice is on *when* to come in with a miner piece (or bluffing a miner) through the central lane and also how to defend against this?
On the offense: is it worth it to use a miner and try and loosen up the base by having it intercepted?
On the defense: in the late middle game, I have often difficulty deciding whether such an incoming piece is a) a real miner a high/top piece trying to dominate the center or c) a bluff piece (sarge e.g.) to let me expose a high piece. I often blindly put a sarge in front to block in case it's a miner and when I also don't want to expose my high piece yet. Maybe I should just not move at all and have him guess for the flag (I find that kinda scary, prefer to block, but I realize this is a leak that will cost me against people who play me more often).
Anyway, my intuition on this is probably way off, but I find that a mix of top piece charges, miner charges and bluff charges (especially when the spy is still in play) is pretty hard to get right.
