2022 - Position 72
Updated: Apr 21, 2022
Match Play. 0-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
This is a huge double because of White’s poor timing and the fact that he could crack his home board on the next roll. White should look on this position as a 3-pt holding game with extras. That gives him just enough to take the double as Red may have trouble filling in his 5-pt once White vacates it.
Red only wins about 11% gammons which gives White just enough leeway to take.
