Match Play. Red leads 1-0 to 7. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?


Yet again a redouble and pass for money becomes no double take because of the match score.

Red should play on for the gammon that will get him to 5-0.


Handing White a 4-cube in such a volatile position is dangerous as it will be coming back on 8 if White becomes even a small favourite and of course with the cube on 8 gammons are valueless to both players.


Redoubling here is a double blunder.
