There are many useful ways to use this program. The best is simply to look at any sequence and first understand why, for example, you hit with a 2-2 after a 6-4 opening but you don't after a 4-3 opening. So you simply compare all the second roll 2-2's. Another approach is simply to look at a 5-2 opening and then see all the responses and what you do with each of them, AND WHY.
And then you look and see how each move changes at the four different scores. You ask yourself how you would play the 2-2 at NMS, GG, GS and DMP, and instead of having to put each play into XG, you can instantly look at them and see what is right, and you know it has been rolled out properly as well. Try doing this with XG or GNU or Snowie and it will take you quite a while.
Then of course, you can do the same kind of analysis with 3rd roll plays, except this program will not help you differentiate for different scores, but knowing the NMS play alone is incredibly helpful. Again, putting these into XG and rolling them out would take considerable time and make it difficult to see side-by-side comparisons.
I hope this answers your question.
