2021 - Position 17
Updated: Jan 27
Money Play. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
A fairly standard middle game double.
The position could well become prime-versus-prime and of course most prime-versus-prime positions are doubles and takes. Red has enough market losers to justify a double but White has a very easy take. After all he has only one checker back to Red’s two.
Not doubling is nearly a double blunder while dropping is merely a single blunder!
