2022 - Position 8
Updated: Jan 13
Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
A classic middle game double. Many people underestimate the strength of Red’s broken prime and hold off doubling positions like this one. However, it is very volatile so the time to double is precisely now.
Despite leading 2-0 Red should still double. White has an anchor and many routes to victory, so this is a very easy take. For money this is a stronger double but still a comfortable take.
