Match Play. Red trails 0-4 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
What would be a perfectly correct beaver for money becomes double/take because of the match score. Even then it is only just a double as White wins 47% of the time with a fair few gammons of his own to win the match.
However, at 0-4 to 7, Red is justified in doubling, even though he is on the bar. At 0-4 down you need to be aggressive with the cube, especially if there are gammons in the air!
