2021 - Position 19
Updated: Feb 1, 2021
Match Play. Red trails 0-3 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this would be no double/beaver.
At this score Red has far more reason to double but in fact it is not quite good enough although it is close. The fact that Red’s fours are duplicated doesn’t help.
Note that White needs exactly two points to win the match and this is another reason for Red not to double. He may get a better chance to use the cube more effectively later.
