'Assuming that that is true, then the key point is that the math itself is no harder than the math you already do to make take decisions. You just estimate effective gammons and do the math as if they were real gammons, using the same gammon prices and raw take points. (O.K., strictly speaking this is true only when you don't have to worry about reredoubles; the math does get more complicated then, and perhaps too complicated to do OTB. But for take decisions in a 4point match, or take decisions for redoubles in an 8point match, the math is exactly the same as what one does today.)'
If you know what your doubling window is, it should not be a huge leap, with experience, to estimate how often you get a recube taken. I think this is a very valuable, perhaps invaluable, concept.
