2023 - Position 51
Updated: Mar 21
Match Play. Red trails 0-2 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Despite his slightly odd structure Red is ahead in Race, Position and Threat. He also trails in the match. Clearly, he should double. At this score White should pass because of the 20% gammons that he loses.
Even at 0-0 White should pass. If the score was reversed and Red was leading 2-0 then this would only just be a double and it would be a trivial take for White.
THE SCORE MATTERS.
