2022 - Position 197
Updated: Dec 5, 2022
Match Play. Red leads 2-1 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
As many have commented this is a fairly standard double and take.
Red has the potential for a five-point prime and/or a blitz. Meanwhile, White has a solid structure and plenty of counter-chances. Red wins a gammon 20% of the time but White wins nearly 30% of games. The race is even.
This volatility makes this a good double and an easy take. Dropping would be a triple blunder.
