2021 - Position 215

Updated: Dec 20, 2021


Match Play. Red leads 4-1 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

For money this is a huge double and an equally huge drop.

At this score doubling would be a blunder. In the variations where White preserves his timing, he has huge leverage with a potential redouble to 4. This sort of position is known as too good/not good enough.

As White, passing an incorrect double here would be a triple blunder.

Once again, the match score is the key factor.
