2023 - Position 146

Updated: Sep 8, 2023


Match Play. 2-2 to 11. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?

A classic middle game double. Blue has a strong position and must double this volatile position. Not doubling is a double blunder.

From White’s perspective the race is close, and all his checkers are in play. He can prime or blitz Blue’s rear checker. Of course, he may not get the chance, but he has a very clear take. Dropping is a bad error but not a blunder.
