Unlimited Games. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
The take is not in doubt as Red only has eight covering numbers and White already has two checkers off.
It is only White’s blot on his 2-pt that makes this a double. Without that tactical opportunity Red would have to hold the cube. Even then this is only just a redouble.
If Red rolls non-covering number most of the time he should leave the 6-pt slotted, but with big numbers, e.g., 44 or 55, he should lift the blot.
