2022 - Position 81
Updated: May 4
Match Play. Red leads 6-4 to 11. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
For money this is double and a very close pass. Trice’s ‘Stack & Straggler’ formula works perfectly for this position. If you don’t know the formula then please download the “Backgammon Races” paper from this website.
As you would expect it is an easy take for White at this score because of the potential redouble to 8. Both not redoubling and passing are bad blunders.
