Remedial Race Analysis

There is a simple way to do it for 3 stragglers and for 4 stragglers.

For 3 stragglers EPC = number of checkers * 3.5 - 6.5 For 4 stragglers EPC = number of checkers * 3.5 - 10

I checked both rules extensively with Gnubg and its EPC feature today. Yes, of course the rule breaks down if many chackers are on the 8, 7, 6, 5 points, but I am lazy to look the limits at the moment and report them.

Now at your position, since you have 3 checkers on the 2 and 3 points the EPC is 1.5 lower for both cases. I have no rule on how to make this adjustment at the moment, I just observed it with Gnubg.

So if all blue checkers were on the ace point for this position we have 15 *3.5 + 6 + 11 + 12 + 16 -10= 87.5 (87.389 according to Gnubg) and because of the made 2 and 3 points we have 86 (85.953 according to Gnubg).
