Thanks, Dmitriy, and congrats for cashing in the Ohio tournament!

 41\$-44C-F-C [D 918–69] '<= 12 Neil Kazaross 41\$-44B-F-C [D 915–69] '<= 12 Neil Kazaross

Key: 41\$ = Slot (13/9 6/5), 44B = Both (24/20*/16* 13/9(2)), 44C = Cross (24/20*/16* 8/4(2)), F = Fan, C = Initial cube

Explanation of nacbracs

So, the Double/Pass equity is omitted (because is it always +1), and the first equity listed is the absolute equity associated with the best play (in this case Double/Take). After that, the relative equity of the second best play (here, No Double) is given, preceded by a minus sign.

Some questions:

1. Must there be a space following the letter D?
2. Can (or should) C = Initial cube and R = Recube be used instead of D = Double?
3. Is N = No double the correct letter for No Initial Double and also for No Redouble?
4. When No Double is best, there are two possibilities: 1. Not good enough, and 2. Too good. Can you explain how they are coded?

Sorry for all the questions. Now you know what Nack has to put up with from me! Please, feel free to take a pass.

Mike
