Unlimited Games. Should Blue redouble? If redoubled, should White take?


With an 18-pip lead and a closed board White has a trivial take. The question is the redouble.


If the spare White checker on White’s ace-point were on White’s 6-pt then redoubling would be a big blunder because White can handle any re-entering number after being hit but 22, 23 and 24 cause him to crash. That is enough to make the redouble correct, but only just. Blue will hit if he can. For example, 43 will be played 9/2*.
