2020 - Position 234

Updated: Dec 30, 2020


Money Play. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

A classic prime versus prime position. Red is at the edge of White’s prime. But has two rear checkers. Meanwhile White has only one rear checker but is not at the edge of Red’s prime.

It is well known that most prime-versus-prime positions are both doubles and takes and so it will come as no surprise to you to find that is the correct answer here.

In this highly volatile position not redoubling is a double blunder while dropping is merely a single blunder.
