wonder if I'll ever become adept enough to find this move ...

this is basically what the Achilles Defense looks like ...
1 to the inside, 4 towards the near border
On 2023-07-04 at 00:58,
it can be used against white pegs in these positions ...
(and so on, diagonally)

it's not a "perfect defense" -- it needs at least one "supporting" peg

this is the Medcalf defense

one sequence when they play "three away" ...
note that "they" win if there is a peg at q9, q11, p12 or n12

With the exception of your first post, all of your variations begin with move 1. It is unclear how they pertain to this game. If you wish to continue a variation over multiple posts, you must include in each post all the moves beginning with move 10, or wherever your variation from the game begins. An easy way to do this is to produce the position you are interested in on the board, then select and copy all the moves highlighted in red below the board, including the vertical bar, and paste that into your comment. It is recommended you use the Preview button and click on the moves in your intended post to make sure the positions you are creating make sense before you press the Comment button.
the bot line is
which evaluates as a strong advantage for black. So yes, you're right about that.
