2021 - Position 145

Unlimited Games. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
At first sight this looks like double/take. Red leads by 17 pips but has an awkward structure and his bear-in could be difficult. The position is highly volatile so Red must double now.
If gammons didn’t count double then the take would be correct. As it is the 9% gammons that Red wins just push this into pass territory. However, it is only a drop by 0.018 so, in real terms, taking is perfectly acceptable. Your choice!
