Open Doubles, 7-point Match
Ben & Jim were leading over Chuck & Matt, 4 to 2, when they faced this 22. Its a tricky play. You can see Ben and Jim make their decision at the 54-minute mark in the video linked above.
How would you play this in unlimited games with neither Jacoby nor beavers? More interestingly, why?
