It is an absolute rarity that an XG rollout of the third roll kind will change the ranking of the best play. So while I won't say an XG rollout wouldn't be nice to have, after much testing I stopped doing XG rollouts of third rolls where I already had extensive GNU rollouts. The bottom line answers never did change. For what it's worth on XGR++ 13/6 is ahead of 13/7 8/7.
There's no problem whatsoever commenting on old threads. I recommend it.
I just woke up so I won't try to analyze a problem but one of the problems with splitting the back checkers here is if you split with one you have to split with the other. (two up) You'd rather split with the six and be able to pass on playing the ace. Being forced to move 24/23 with the ace weakens your position and makes two up the inferior choice.
