2021 - Position 40
Updated: Mar 2, 2021
Match Play. 1-1 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Despite only leading by 12 pips in a position with a lot of contact and not having built any new home board points Red can just muster up a double here based on the volatility. His superb structure will rapidly lead to new points.
For his part White has an easy take based on the race alone. For the moment his goalkeeper on Red’s ace-point is an asset but, as those home board points get filled in, the asset will turn into a liability and White will need to be careful to step with it at the appropriate moment, dice willing.
Just a double, and an easy take.
