2022 - Position 173

Updated: Oct 26


XGID=a-BBcBCBA-------aA-bbbbbB-:1:1:1:00:2:5:0:9:10


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.
