Match Play. Red trails 0-3 to 11. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?


This is a prime vs. prime position and the old adage goes that all PvP positions are doubles and takes. This position is not an exception to that rule.


A very clear double and an equally clear take, despite the score. Dropping would be a blunder. White’s checker on his ace-point is a weakness but not enough to change the decision.


It is remarkable how often the old adage holds up under scrutiny.
