Away scoring Actions speak louder than words

In Response To: Away scoring Actions speak louder than words (Taper_Mike)

Not only is my bot set for away scoring, but that is the scoring I use on my actual scorecard. I also teach all of my students to consider the away score, the take points, gammon values, and general cube and checker strategy before they play the first move of every game. I do this religiously myself. (Sometimes I also stop and think about recube take points and I remind myself about any particular traits of my opponent relative to cube action and checker play.)

I recall one opponent laughing at me for hesitating to play my 3-1 opening.
