Match Cube answer

It is a redouble and a drop.  Most players take this cube and just don't realize how good a game Red has, but if you consider that small numbers make points and large numbers clear the midpoint, Blue really doesn't have much to play for.  Blue is pretty much dead in the race and needs to get a shot and hit it. 

It's interesting to note that if Blue had his 2 point made instead of the ace point, it would be a take.  This clearly illustrates the importance of making points in order if you can.  With the 2 point open, even if things go well for Blue, Blue probably doesn't have an immediate redouble after hitting and Red might have 2, 3, or more rolls to roll a 2 and get back into the game.
