2021 - Position 56
Updated: Mar 24
Match Play. Red trails 0-3 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this is a clear double and an equally clear take.
At this score Red needs to be wary of doubling because White needs precisely two points to win the match. It turns out that this is a borderline double and a very trivial take. There are few gammons for either player and it is a very easy position to play.
