2021 - Position 114

Updated: Jul 6, 2021


Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

A slightly trick question.

If Red doubles White should drop in a flash. Even if he hits a shot he has very little chance of containing the hit checker.

However, Red should not double because he is too good to double and should play on for a gammon.

Doubling is very nearly a blunder. Of course, if you think White might mistakenly take then by all means, go ahead and double.
