2022 - Position 201
Updated: Dec 9, 2022
Match Play. 0-0 to 11. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
I normally wait to safety the straggler in positions like this before doubling as Red but only 22 and 52 fail to safety the blot.
Without that wrinkle this would be a standard double and take and that is precisely what this position is.
Not doubling is a mistake rather than error but dropping would be a double blunder.
