Match Play. Blue leads 2-0 to 7? Should Blue redouble? If redoubled, should White take?



Those who commented (thank you) got this right. Redoubling will pretty much kill gammons and Blue doesn’t have very long to roll a 5. Even then White may anchor and end up with a playable ace-point game. Blue should play on for a gammon. Blue will hit with most fours but a return hit by White could be fatal. Also, the cube might prove useful later.


Blue should hold the cube and play on. Redoubling is a massive blunder.
