Rollout Help

Posted By: AP
Date: Wednesday, 18 September 2013, at 4:03 a.m.

I am very new to rollouts, and was hoping for some guidance on which settings to use. Here is a position from a recent game that I rolled out using different settings...and got very different results.

First rollout is cubeless, but apparently converted to cubeful at the end...second rollout is cubeful. Why is there such a big difference in cubeful equity? Are there some additional settings I missed that would help align the results? Are there some positions where cubeless rollouts are better but others where cubeful are better?
