Money Play. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
Apologies - this should have said Money Play not Match Play.
White’s four-point prime is too strong for Red to be able to redouble here. He should hold the cube and hope to be able to use it later to give White a difficult decision. At the moment the take is trivial and redoubling is a blunder.
Unfortunately, the score is not given here. However, with two open checkers, I think Red is better off owning the cube.
For money, no redouble/take - as Ben said, red is better off owning the cube. In a match, the score would be crucial in determining the cube action, so can't comment on that until we know the score!
