Cube decision - check your prime reflex


XG skin design by Rain


A cube decision for a change this week. Black is on roll, money game. What’s the correct cube action?

I got this one horribly wrong over the board - my prime reflex wasn’t working too well, and I guess I got scared. Primes are all about timing. Who’s going to crunch first in this situation? Who has the harder job extracting their back checkers? Those questions should make it clear that it’s White who’s in trouble, not Black - enough that this is a clear pass for White, and close to being too good to double for Black!

The correct answer is Redouble/Pass. How was your prime reflex today?
