2024 - Position 107

Updated: Jul 4



Match Play. Red trails 6-7 to 11. Should Red double. If doubled, should White take?

Players often underestimate the power of a five-point home board and hold off doubling in positions like this one.


Red leads in Position, race and threat.


It is only the strength of White’s mini-prime that enables him to take this very clear double.


The take is clear despite Red getting to Crawford with White on an odd number if Red wins a gammon. Both not doubling as Red and dropping as White are very big blunders.
