Match Play. Red trails 0-1 to 3. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?


As White I had just rolled 61 and had to play 14/8, 6/5. My opponent promptly doubled because of his triple shot.


It looks scary but this is no double despite the match score and the gammon threat – Red just has too much work to do. It is nearly a blunder to double.


I took and won the game, but it was a close run thing. For money, of course, this is no double/beaver.
