2023 - Position 54
Updated: Mar 24
Match Play. 0-0 to 5. Should Orange double? If doubled, should White take?
This is obviously a very strong double and nobody would be blamed for passing it as White. When I first saw this position, I certainly thought it was a drop.
The rollouts show it to be a very small take as White has just enough scrambling vig to take the cube. The other key point is that White wins 10% gammons and that pushes this into take territory but only by 0.024 equity points.
I could see this position causing a lot of arguments in a chouette or a consulting doubles match.
