Match Play. Red trails 2-4 to 7. Should Red double. If doubled, should White take?


For money this would be double/pass.

At this score White can take because winning the game with the cube on 2 gets him to Crawford. Being behind doesn’t always mean you have to play more tightly with the cube. As I have often said the score is nearly always the overriding factor.

This sort of problem occurs often enough that you should know what to do in such situations.
