2024 - Position 86

Updated: May 20


XGID=--bB-aDBC----D-ababbbb----:0:0:1:00:4:4:0:7:10


Match Play. 4-4 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?


For money this is a double (just) and a trivial take.

 

However, we are at three-away vs three-away. At that score we know to double earlier than usual and also to drop ealier as the defender. This is because the winner of the game gets to the Crawford Game, and might even win the match with a gammon.

 

That makes this position a massive double. The pass/take decision is right on the borderline and so you can make your choice based upon your estimate of your opponnet’s skill level.
