Match Play. 2-2 to 9.  How should Red play 54?


This is a simple pay-me-now, pay-me-later problem. Despite the double shot it is clearly correct to pay now with 13/9, 13/8 while White has such a weak board, including a slotted 5-pt. Meanwhile Red is nearly out of time so now is the moment to take a small risk.


6/2, 6/1 a very bad error and 8/4, 6/1 is a blunder.
