2024 - Position 109

Match Play. Red trails 4-7 to 13. Should Red redouble. If redoubled, should White take?


It should be clear that Red has a powerful redouble. He will hit with all fives and ones, picking aand apssing with some of them. If white doesn’t enter immediately he will be all but lost.

 

In addition White has more crossovers and huge wastage in his home board. The end result is that White has a take. It is close to a drop but only because of the score. At an even score this is still a redouble but also now a trival take.

'The end result is that W has a take' - is that deduced by feel or is there some formula that can be used to know that?
