2022 - Position 147
Updated: Sep 2, 2022
Match Play. 2-2 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
A very clear double and for money a small pass because of the number of pips White needs to reach his home board.
At this score it is an easy take because of the power of the redouble to 4 which would take White to the Crawford game. As a consequence, Red will be dropping some redoubles that he would take for money.
This is perhaps not obvious at first sight but the complexities of match play are many and various!
