One of the many differences between a good player and a great player is knowing when to play on for the gammon and knowing when to turn the cube. Playing for the gammon also affects checker play...how much to risk the game to win the gammon.

In money games, this is a major decision, and sometimes it is right to cube even if it is technically "too good" to double if you might get a take. But before you can learn to "read" your opponent, both in money and match play, you need to read the board and know what the right decision is.
