The subject of "four away-two away" has been covered fairly thoroughly by GammonVillage writers and others over the years, but this month, I want to focus on the decision of when to double when your opponent is "two away" and you are "many" away.
These are cases when your opponent needs exactly two points and you need four or more points. Most of these decisions will be fairly similar but there are some nuances to look out for depending on how many points you are from victory.
Additionally, depending on the type of game, you may need to double fairly quickly or wait a very long time. Mostly this is "gammon" dependent but the variable of volatility is also a key factor.
