2022 - Position 13
Updated: Jan 24
Match Play. 0-0 to 7. How should Red play 41?
White will be very close to a redouble next turn and only the lack of volatility may preclude that.
With a huge racing deficit, the goalkeeper on the 22-pt needs to stay in place.
7/2 is a possibility but Red needs to guard against prematurely crashing his board. Red cannot hold everything. He must relinquish White’s bar-point. 18/13 or 18/14, 9/8 are both OK and there is no significant difference in equity between the two plays.
