2023 - Position 21

Updated: Feb 2, 2023


Match Play. Red leads 4-2 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

As ever the score is the deciding factor. Red does not get full value for his gammons at this score and White will be redoubling much earlier than usual. As a result, what is a double/pass for money becomes a big no double/take at 3-away vs 5-away.

Doubling is a double blunder. Red should leave the cube centred and play for an undoubled gammon until he sees how things develop.
