2021 - Position 186

Updated: Nov 8, 2021


Match Play. Red leads 3-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

A classic doubling position that should be well known.

Red should double when he is twenty pips ahead and White can take until he is fifty pips behind. Above fifty pips the gammon losses can push White into drop territory. That is quite a large doubling window and this position is well within it so as you might expect this is double and take.
