Match Play. Red trails 3-4 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this would be a double and a close pass. At this score, however, a 2-point win for White gets him to the Crawford Game with his opponent on an odd number.
That is a very good outcome for White and so he can (just) squeeze out a take of Red’s obvious double.
