In Response To: Lowest Win % Correct Double in moneygame (AP)

Paul Epstein recently asked on rec.games.backgammon whether there could be a position which is a D/P for money but where the player on roll is a DMP underdog. Nack Ballard came up with the position below, where he estimates Blue's DMP winning chances to be about 47%. This is probably not optimal.
