Cube Action/Answer

Usually when you get to a position like this at this score, you have to wonder why someone didn't cube earlier.  It's generally right to cube when you have even a very slight lead at this score, and it's right to take if you can win more than about 1/3 of the time (31.5 to 32 is what most consider to be the correct take point).   Since gammons don't matter after the cube is turned, Red can and should take this cube because he does win more than 1/3 of the time, as you can see in the extremeGammon evaluation below.
