Match Cube Answer

A lot of people would not cube here.  You look at this position and think it is going to be very difficult to leave White's bar point without leaving a shot that is sure to get hit.  The fact is, that's probably true, but Red is so far ahead in the race that he can afford to get hit once or even two or three times and still bring this race home, and White has to be very careful not to get hit back in the process.  So, as you can see in the ExtremeGammon evaluation below, it is a big double and a big take.

As my good friend Jake (Jacobs) is fond of saying:  "Pips is pips."
