2020 - Position 118

Money Play. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

Both players have structural problems. The race is even. Red has the advantage because White has a checker on the bar and two exposed blots.

Red should double because of the volatility. However, Red has only nine checkers in the attack zone and two of those are out of play on his ace-point.

If White can anchor, he has a very playable game. The position is only just a double and it is a trivial take. Dropping would be a triple blunder.
