In Response To: Cube action? (John O'Hagan)
I was going to say promptly it is a take and an iffy redouble, recalling this position incorrectly:
White is Player 2
Blue is Player 1
XGID=-aDAa------------abbbbbb-A:1:-1:-1:D:0:0:3:0:10 White double to 4 take ?

It was only a few days ago, this came up.I ran a cubeless RO and I remember blue having %22-something. (I don't have the RO result anymore )
In the position posted by John, the player on roll shoots at the second checker with 20 numbers but the bar-point is not made. I don't know how to quantify the impact of the open bar-point, however 9 shots more appear to push the trailer's chances (from %22) below his take-point.
