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


Red has excellent structure while White has a lot of weaknesses. Red leads in the race. However, the whole of his next roll will be taken up entering from the bar (assuming he doesn’t roll a 6).


White’s 3-pt anchor will keep in the game for a very long time.


Red just doesn’t have sufficient market-losing threats here to justify a double although the rollouts have it as quite close which demonstrate how poor White’s position. The correct answer is no double/take.
