2023 - Position 133

Updated: Aug 10, 2023


Match Play. Blue trails 1-2 to 5. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?

Anybody who would take this double as White at this score should go and see a backgammon doctor!

The real question is whether Blue should play on for a gammon.

Common sense should prevail because Blue’s structure is far from perfect and even if he does close out two checkers, he will only win a gammon just over 40% of the time.

So, Blue should double and White should drop.
