2023 - Position 49

Updated: Mar 17, 2023


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

Red leads in race and position but his threats are relatively mild. The gap on his 4-pt gives him a blitzing structure rather than a priming structure and for the moment he has only eight checkers in the attack zone.

This is precisely time to double. If White fans next turn, he will nearly certainly have to drop Red’s double. If one of Red’s checkers on his mid-point was already on his 10-pt that would turn this position into a big pass.

For now White has a correct if slightly uncomfortable take
