• 2019 - Position 156


    Money Game. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?

    A classic endgame double due to the volatility.

    Even if Red misses White cannot redouble immediately so now is the time to double. Of course, White’s redoubles are immensely powerful when the do occur.

    Not doubling is a quadruple blunder while passing is a quintuple blunder!
