2022 - Position 73

Match Play. Red trails 0-2 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
A classic middle game double. At an even score or for money this is just a double and a very easy take.
At this score this is a must double. After all, gammons count double! Not doubling would be a bad blunder. It is, however, still a very easy take. White’s 27-pip lead is a vital factor in all of this, and White’s home board is growing in strength.
