    Match Play. Red trails 5-6 to 11. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

    For money and with a fully active cube this would be a clear redouble and an equally clear take.

    At this score the take is right on the borderline and the decision will be influenced by your knowledge of your opponent and how well he plays such positions.

      RD/P. Looks like a fair bit of gammon potential for red here. IMHO too much for white to take.

      Re/T. Red has only a two point board & White has a valuable 4 point anchor.
