Rollout

In Response To: Cube action? (John O'Hagan)

I came across this position in a match vs. xgr+. OTB, I estimated the leader's dead cube takepoint to be around 26%, that gammon values favored the trailer by 62% to 33%, and that the trailer's 8-cube takepoint (excepting last roll positions) was 17%. The actual numbers are 27%, 60%, 34%, and 16%.

Does the leader have a take? Sure looks like it. The race is close, some of my numbers don't hit, those that do mostly leave a direct shot, Black wins some g's as well, and he gets some value from owning the cube.

Should I redouble? Looks like a pretty volatile position. 55 is a super joker, 15 more numbers hit and put Black on the roof vs. a 5 or 5.5 point board, and 52 hits outside. That's about 12.5 big mkt losers which should be enough to justify a redouble ATS.

The RO shows this to be both a big redouble and an easy take.

At 11a-11a, it's good enough for an initial double but not a redouble.
