In Response To: Director's ruling at the Chicago Open... (Bob Koca)
According to the current EUBGFED rules, redoubling from 2 to 4 when 2 behind is not possible. It cannot be done and it cannot be legally accepted.
"4.4 ... (vii) DOUBLING WHEN THE CUBE IS DEAD - If a player holds a cube at a level that would be sufficient for that player to win the match, the doubling cube is deemed to be ‘dead’ meaning that it is no longer available for further cube action by such player. If in these circumstances the player mistakenly doubles such cube action is deemed invalid. In such circumstances the double may be annulled in the same three situations as apply to the annulment of an incorrect double in the Crawford game (section 4.4, subsection (iv) (a) to (c)) save that the prior (dead) cube value shall determine the number of points scored."
The reference to the Crawford game speaks of these three cases (the middle one seems irrelevant): "(a) if the game is in progress. When a double is annulled in a game in progress, the game is continued without the use of the doubling cube; (b) if the game has ended, but the next game has not yet started. When a double is annulled between games the scorecards of the players are corrected so that the points totals equal the number of points that would have been correct without the use of the doubling cube; and (c) if the game in which the double was made was the last game of the match. When a double is annulled after the end of the match the scorecards of the players are corrected so that the points totals equal the number of points that would have been correct without the use of the doubling cube and the match is resumed. The Tournament Director is obliged to intervene if he is informed that a Crawford game has been doubled so that the double may be annulled."
