Robertie says white should pass, but this is a huge take. Blue has just about enough to double.

Adding 10th checker in the zone for blue is still a comfortable take for white.

Give white an ace point anchor and it's barely a double.

Finally, move one blue back checker to 18pt and it becomes a pass.
