This is not "2-away/7-away cube action." It's
"7-away/5-away recube action." Generally speaking, if the
7-away player detects the slightest whiff of a gammon, he
should redouble (unless he's too good). The question here
is whether O can take. With X being on the bar and nearly
40 pips down, you might think that this would be an easy take,
but ATS I think it's a pass. If it's a pass then the question
is whether X is TG. Despite efforts to train myself, I still
have a tendency to cash when TG. I think this is D/P.
