Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
A standard middle game double and take. If Red rolls a five his winning and gammon chances are very good but thing can very easily go wrong. The race is even and even if Red covers his 2-pt he has work to do. Meanwhile any entering ace for White gives him realistic winnings chances.
