2022 - Position 7
Updated: Jan 12
Match Play. Red trails 2-4 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
At an even score this is no double and trivial take because of White’s strong broken prime. However, at this score, four points gets Red to the Crawford Game and so this becomes a massive double and not doubling is now a blunder.
Because of his broken prime with two Red checkers trapped behind it White still has a trivial take of Red’s double. Dropping is nearly a quadruple blunder.
