    Match Play. 9-11 to 15. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

    Once again, a position that would be a premature redouble for money becomes a mandatory redouble because of the match score where a gammon will win him the match and, of course, White can never subsequently win with a redouble of his own.

      My educated guess is RD/T.

Welcome to my blog of interesting backgammon positions.

These will be posted more or less daily and also tweeted. As I add a new position I will give a commentary for the previous one.
