2023 - Position 99

Updated: Jun 13, 2023


Match Play. Blue leads 5-1 to 11. Should Blue double? If doubled, should White take?

For money this would be a perfectly reasonable double and take with Blue leading in race, threat and position but not by much in each.

At this score Blue should wait as the cube will come bouncing back quickly if things go well for White. XG rates the double as a small error. It is a very easy take for White, but Blue will still get some drops.

I had this position in a UKBGF online match as White. My opponent doubled and I took. We then reached a double-edged position which was only a redouble because of the score. I went on to win four points and level up the match.
