21$-43 129,600 Rollout Result Posted

Posted By: Paul Weaver
Date: Thursday, 25 July 2013, at 6:31 p.m.

This position recently came up in an online money game. I noticed that XG's opening book had a 5184 rollout result that had S (24/20* 13/10) better than U (24/20* 24/21) by 0.002. I was skeptical, so I did a longer rollout.

Before Jellyfish came out in 1994, I never saw anyone play U. I have been playing U in this position since I first learned of the Jellyfish rollout result sometime in the late 1990s.

I am guessing that U is best at DMP and Gammon Save; S is best at Gammon Go. In the absence of rollout results to the contrary, I would always play U when not trailing in a match. I might also play U when trailing by only one point. I would probably play S when trailing by more than one point.
