2021 - Position 151
Updated: Sep 13
Match Play. Red trails 1-3 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money it would be a blunder to double this position. At this score it would be a quadruple blunder not to double(!) such is the power of the cube at 4-away vs. 2-away. A gammon wins the match for Red and the position is definitely gammonish.
White has a clear route to victory and two points give him the match. It is an easy take, dropping would be a blunder.
