2020 - Position 129

Match Play. Red leads 1-0 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Red’s double is very clear. For money this would be a comfortable take but at this score taking is a triple blunder.
A doubled gammon gives Red the match with perfect efficiency so that should set the alarm bells ringing for White. He has to let this one go and play from 0-2.
