2024 - Position 108

Updated: Jul 5



Match Play. Red 0-0 to 13. Should Red double. If doubled, should White take?

The double is very clear but it may surprise many that this is a take for White, albeit not by a huge magin.


White has an anchor and also a broken prime on his side of the board.


These factors, coupled with Red’s slightly ugly structure are enough to give White his take and ropping would be an error.


The position demonstrates the resilient power of anchor.
