2021 - Position 169
Updated: Oct 8
Match Play. Red trails 4-6 to 11. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
It is amazing what trailing in match and having a gammon threat in a volatile position can do to the doubling cube.
For money this is no double/beaver. At this score not doubling is an error, albeit not by much. Needless to say that over the board in a UK league match I gave scant thought to doubling. The opportunity only came to light in post-match analysis.
Yet again a good position to learn from.
