2020 - Position 50

Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 7. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
For money you can take or pass this redouble and you won’t be making a mistake. Not redoubling is a blunder.
At the match score redoubling is still correct, but it becomes an easy take. It is a powerful redouble because Red gets to Crawford if he wins the game. Equally well White can redouble to 8 once his winning chances exceed about 9%. A volatile position indeed!
