2021 - Position 35
Updated: Feb 23
Match Play. 1-1 to 7. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
The position is hugely volatile and Red has 19 powerful hitting numbers.
However, 17 numbers miss and, whatever happens, White will always have an ace-point game. Of course, Red will stay on the bar with nine numbers when White won’t be quite strong enough to redouble to 8 but will initially play on a for a gammon.
The volatility makes this a redouble but only just. A drop from White would be a quintuple blunder!
