Match Play. 2-2 to 5. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?


For money Blue must double this position to activate the gammon threat but at this score Blue should not double although it is close. He is likely to be leaving a triple shot next turn and so he should hold the cube to use later. At the moment, White has a trivial take. Blue needs to give White a much more difficult decision.


Of course, if you think your opponent might drop then, by all means, go ahead and double.
