Money Play. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Another good benchmark. This is the skinniest of takes for White and of course, a powerhouse double for Red.
Interestingly, if you put the White checker from his 9-pt onto his 6-pt, the position becomes a borderline double/no double and a trivial take.
I agree with Peder. White is too far behind in the race to win by breaking contact, and it looks like the timing is off for continuing the holding game. Besides, White may never remake the 6-point.
Double/Pass, but I think it's close.
