2021 - Position 209

Updated: Dec 12, 2021


Match Play. Red trails 1-2 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

A classic match score double with four points giving Red the match with perfect efficiency.

Not doubling would be a blunder. In a money game doubling here would be grossly premature and it would be worse than a double blunder. Such is the power of the match score. Of course, the take is trivial.
