Solution to Bearing Down

Use the 4 to bring the man on the 6-point to the 2-point, then use the 6 to bear off the man on the 5-point.

This is better strategy than bearing off the 6-point and bringing the man on the 5-point to the 1-point. It is better to leave a man on the 2-point so as not to waste a throw of 2.
