2022 - Position 70

Updated: Apr 19, 2022


Unlimited Games. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

This is a difficult problem because you may not have seen anything like it before. It came after White rolled a dreadful double fours.

It is highly volatile because of White’s blots and those three dead checkers do not bode well for him. Conversely, White has the bar-point anchor/escape route, and he does lead the race by 56 pips so he can survive quite a few hits and at least for the moment he has the stronger home board.

It turns out that not redoubling is a blunder but also that White has a comfortable take.

I took this redouble as White and won after a long hard battle.

File this one away for future reuse!
