2022 - Position 173
Updated: Oct 26, 2022
Match Play. Red trails 2-5 to 9. Should Red redouble, if redoubled should White take?
A tremendous match score redouble. For money this would be a trivial beaver. If the cube was in the centre this would be a big no double.
Red wins only 49% of the time from here but nearly half of those wins are gammons and a gammon wins the match.
Surprisingly, not redoubling now becomes a double blunder.
This position would pass many people by, and they would miss the redouble completely. It is only because XG flagged this up that I studied it at all. Thus, is progress made.
