Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this is a massive pass because of the gammons but once again the score has a profound influence.
White’s ace-point anchor gives him long-term equity and his overall structure is good, with the potential to prime Red’s rear checker. It also gives him a comfortable take because of his potential to redouble to 4. The volatility is high so Red must double now.
