2021 - Position 109
Updated: Jun 29
Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Red is ahead in two out of out of three of Position, Race and Threat. The position is volatile due to the loose White checker.
All that adds up to a classic double and take which are the correct actions here.
If you put the two White checkers on Red’s 2-pt onto the ace-point the position becomes a massive pass but because White can see daylight from the 2-pt he actually has a trivial take.
