2022 - Position 148
Updated: Sep 12, 2022
Match Play. 0-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
This should come under the heading of ‘known positions’ as positions of this type constantly recur.
The position is very volatile so Red should double. White has two ways to win, hitting a shot or winning the race. These combination of these two options give him a comfortable take.
Not doubling is nearly a blunder while passing the double is nearly a double blunder.
