2023 - Position 134
Updated: Aug 11
Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Blue redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
For money this is just a redouble and a very easy take. Even if Blue enters from the bar, he still has a lot of work to do.
At this score things are very different. Two points get Blue to 4-0 and the Crawford game. That is hugely advantageous to him. Beware of cubes that get your opponent to Crawford when he/she is the favourite to win the game.
XG rates this as a drop by the tiniest of margins so taking is fine but just remember the influence of the score on the decision.
