Unlimited Games. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?


Doubling from the bar is often overrated.

 

Red certainly has a double here because of the volatility plus his strong home board. However, White has an easy take. All his checkers are in play and he has his own blitzing and priming options. In addition, Red has only eight checkers in the zone and an undeveloped stack of checkers on his mid-point.

 

Not doubling is nearly a double blunder. Dropping would be a 1.5 blunder.

 

Not a difficult problem.
