White doubles, should black take?
Hi all, I was shocked when this position arose in a recent game between me and snowie.
Sorry for the small picture, hope it's clear.
He offered me the cube in tha position and I quickly passed. I have a awful position, and soon I will be very behind in the race and I'm on the bar and snowie is about to bring down some builders from the midpoint to keep me behind.
I didn't use the prat rule (Sylvester's rule), I assumed that this was similar to a blitzing position where white has a very good board and I no position at all.
Rolling out the position 3-ply it's a huge take
for snowie but I couldn't understand why.
Can someone give an explanation?
Many thanks in advance
