2022 - Position 88
Updated: May 13
Match Play. Red leads 6-0 to 11. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this would be a huge pass, but the score distorts matters.
Now it is the skinniest of doubles and a trivial take due to the huge leverage that White gets from owning the cube with the potential to redouble to 4 in a gammonish position.
Huge leads do strange things to the doubling window and this position is a classic example. Many would on to the cube as Red here.
