2019 - Position 203

Match Play. Red trails 0-2 to 7. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?
For money this would be a grossly premature redouble but at this score Red cannot afford to lose his market. Now not redoubling would be a massive blunder.
Yet again the match score completely dominates the cube decision.
Redouble/take. Behind in the match, this is a good opportunity for red to put some pressure on white. White's board is crunched and red has full control of the outfield. I think it's a comfortable take as white has a massive lead in the race and red's structure is not particularly well developed. In a money game or an even score in the match I wouldn't go near the cube.
