2023 - Position 53
Updated: Mar 23
Match Play. Blue lead 3-0 to 7. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this is a huge double and the take/pass decision is right on the borderline.
At this score a doubled gammon wins the match for blue with perfect efficiency and so the double is still very clear. However, because of the redoubling possibilities White has a very clear take. Passing would be a huge blunder. White has both priming and blitz potential.
