2022 - Position 46
Updated: Mar 14
Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
Red still has a lot of work to do to win this position and many would hold off from redoubling.
However, White’s army is split in two, he has made his ace-point and he has a dilly builder on his 3-pt. Red will win a high percentage of gammons although he will not need all the points with the cube on four.
This is not good enough to play on for gammon but Red should redouble. Technically this is a drop but only just but that assumes perfect play. In practice, Red will get a lot of takes here.
