Croquet openings, high handicap vs. low handicap

R&Y are high handicap with a lot of bisques. B&B are low handicap.

R&Y in first

Yellow must move blue in turn 2, otherwise black will hit in in turn 3 and go round with 3 balls. A bisque will be needed unless the tice is very short.

If black hits in in turn 3 they have some difficult shots to start a 3-ball break.
