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


White has a powerful home board and only trails by 14 pips. White also has an anchor.


The position is volatile, and Blue has threats but even if he makes his 5-pt he still has a lot of work to do. At the moment, he only has a two-point home board and an ugly stack of checkers on his 6-pt.


White has many ways to win this game, including a possible back game or even a blitz.


All this adds to a double from Blue but only just. White has a trivial take. Dropping is nearly a triple blunder.
