2020 - Position 7
Updated: Jan 15
Match Play. Red leads 3-2 to 9. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
For money this would be redouble and a small pass.
The match score and the cube value change that considerably. Because of the potential redouble to 8 by White, which kills gammons for both players, Red should hold the cube and play-on. He may well become too good and go on to win a gammon. Alternatively, he can make use of the cube later.
Redoubling at this match score is a significant error.
