Takepoints are easy at this score. Since a take will result in a recube to 8, the takepoint is just the match equity for the score if black passes., which is 15.5%
The raw pipcount is 57-52. Add 2 for each checker on the ace, one for each checker on the deuce, one for each gap and two for the checker in the outfield and we get
57 + 4 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 65 to 52 + 1 + 1 = 54. That's 11 pips.
Using Trice's formula, subtract 5, divide by 7 and round down. 54 - 5 /7 = 7
7 pips down is a money take, or about 22%. At 2% per pip, White is about 14% to win. That's less than the takepoint, so it's a cash.
I'll be interested is hearing how I screwed this one up. (c:
