Just a question, based on the diagram aren't you are going to give the intruder a cover or at least concealment if you move to the other corner? Please corect me if I'm wrong but if the intruder slices the pie at the corner your target would be a lot smaller than if he is in a hallway in the wide open. The only benefit I could see in doing that is if you were moving back to cover and he will only have concealment at the corner. Maybe that angle feels a little awkward for some people but I don't know if I would want to give up my advantage of having him out in the open while I'm behind cover or concealment.

This would be your main objective. By moving back and the BG moving forward, you have the advantage to gain cover or concealment before the BG approaches. At that point if the BG continues forward past the corner of the wall, he is then in the open and subject to fatal fire while you are in a hidden position and the BG needs time to find out where you are at.

I think the sketch is partially completed. You need to wait until the BG is in the hallway...maybe 1/3 the way so he is not too close and doesn't have any cover or easy retreat as well.

That is what I will do... in a perfect world .
