    Money Play. Should Red redouble? If redoubled. Should White take?

    Red should redouble now because he risks losing his market if he hits.

    The key point is that White cannot redouble if Red misses as he is likely to leave multiple shots. Red also wins a gammon about 18% of the time.

    However, White has a comfortable take as he wins about a third of the time and he will win a gammon around 8% of the time.

    The key here is White’s inability to redouble if Red misses.
