2028 - Position 38

Match Play 2-2 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

 

A classic volatile middle game position.

 

It might seem that Red has too much firepower for White to accept a double but White has the stronger home board and the ace-point anchor. The gaps in Red’s prime leave White plenty of chances to establish a high anchor.

 

It is a blunder not to double as Red and a very nearly a blunder to drop as White. So, double/take
