2023 - Position 189

Updated: Nov 22, 2023



Match Play. 0-0 to 9. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

White has a sixty-pip racing lead, but his last two checkers are far from home. Can he escape them often enough to justify taking the redouble from Red?


The technical answer is no. XG rates this a tiny pass. However, that assumes perfect play by Red and that is very unlikely. So, for practical purposes I would class this as a take. If things go well White may well get in a powerful redouble to 8.
