2022 - Position 135

Match Play. Red trails 0-2 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
This is a huge double for money (activating the gammon threat) and a truly massive double at this score as a gammon gets Red to the Crawford Game.
Not doubling is a sextuple blunder – about as big as they get! In Kent Goulding’s parlance not doubling would be a double, triple whopper.
Easy take of course.
