There were several in the chou who thought this was a drop.  As you can see below, it's a big take.  I wanted to see what would make this a drop, so I moved White's checker from his 23 point to his midpoint (13).   It was still a big take.  So I tried moving that same checker to White's bar point (7 point).  It was still a big take.

So the lesson here is:  if you are holding his 2 point and his 5 is open and he still has one or more checkers to bring around and your checkers are not "wasted," you probably will have a take.
