2024 - Position 27

Match Play. 0-0 to 7. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?


With a volatile position and twenty-nine hitting numbers this is a very clear redouble.

 

It might look like a drop for White, but he will win seven games immediately when Red does not hit. When hit he will re-enter immediately 30% of the time with reasonable winning chances and some gammon chances. In fact White wins 30% of the time from this position.

 

All that adds up to a comfortable take for White. Dropping would be a double blunder. Equally well if Red does not redouble this position that would also be a double blunder.
