Match Play. Blue trails 0-4 to 7. Should Blue redouble? If redoubled, should White take?


For money this would be no redouble/beaver but the threat of a match-winning gammon with the cube on 4 gives Blue a small redouble. Trivial take for White of course.


Never underestimate the power of a redouble in short matches. Most players wouldn’t even think of redoubling here but Blue could lose the match anyway so he loses little by redoubling.
