2023 - Position 170

Match Play. 0-0 to 9. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
As we all know nearly all prime versus prime positions are doubles and takes.
The take here is very clear. It is the double which is in doubt. A long XG rollout shows that you can double or not and you will be making the right decision. Not many players would give this up as White so I would hold the cube but if you think you might get a drop then you should double.
Passing as White would be a quadruple blunder.
