In Response To: Chouette Money Management Equity and PR Issues (mamabear)
I completely agree that money managements is a weak excuse for making a bad decision, but dropping or taking close cubes or giving or holding on to a cube based on the skills and proclivities of the opponent is a valid adjustment that cannot be measured by XG and can rarely be proven mathematically, but can certainly be proven by results and experience.
For example, when I give a cube that is not a double to a player that I am fairly certain will drop, and he does drop, I have proven my point. And if I double a cube that is too good to double and he takes, I have again proven my point.
However, if I drop a cube that is a take because it is against a highly skilled player who will help the other 3 players in the game with their checker plays and cube decisions, I cannot prove that I truly did come out ahead by giving away equity to to better player, but my experience and judgment tell me that I believe I did the right thing, logically and financially, and I will continue to make those kinds of decisions. This is not money management, but is people management.
