Money Play. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
Another classic middle game double and take.
Red has enough threats that he should double now before he loses his market. Meanwhile, White has enough structure to be able to comfortably take. Note that the race is equal and that is a key influencing factor. Not doubling is a double blunder, dropping is a 1.5 blunder.
D/T. Red has some threats with 10 checkers in the attacking zone and 2 loose white blots. The blot on white's 1 pt is also a weakness. However, I think white has an easy take, with the 4pt made and the race very close.
