The best play is to hit off the 5 point, as you can see below.  And after that play, the correct cube action is no double/take.

In our chouette, the captain ran a checker from his opponent's 5 point, and the proper cube action was double/take after that. 

So one lesson here is to keep in mind the affect of your play on the cube action!
