2019 - Position 200

Match Play. Red leads 3-1 to 7. Should Red double? If doubled, should White take?
For money this a close but correct take. The Trice formula gets this wrong, but Reichert gets it right.
The match score changes things completely. Now White’s redoubles to 4 are hindered because four points give Red the match with perfect efficiency. White will need to be more circumspect than usual when redoubling.
This turns the position into a very clear drop and it is a blunder to take.
Double/pass. The racing lead is too much.
D/P. According to Trice, White is one pip short of a take.
