2021 - Position 210
Updated: Dec 13, 2021
Match Play. Red trails 2-5 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this is a close double and a trivial take. Red’s open 6-pt gives White many long-term chances and White’s home board is as strong as Red’s, at least for the moment.
At this score the double is stronger, but it is still a trivial take for the same reasons as above. White would be very unlucky to have both blots hit and closed out and then to lose a gammon. Dropping is a bad blunder.
