Unlimited Games. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?
Despite Blue’s lead in the race, the White checker on the bar and the threat to White’s loose checker Blue still does not have a double.
There is just too much work to do to win the game and White’s anchor on Blue’s 5-pt prevents both blitzing and priming game plans by Blue. Blue needs to be closer to the winning line before he can offer the cube.
Doubling here is very nearly a blunder.
