Match Play. 0-0 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
This is clearly a huge double for Red, but what about the take?
White’s fourteen checkers in the zone are certainly an asset. Can that, plus the possibility of escaping the last rear checker add up to a take? Red will some gammons when he closes out the last checker but not that many.
Over the board I would drop but it turns out this is right on the borderline. You can take or pass and have the same equity. Are you feeling lucky?
