Please explain what's going on in this position. Thanks.

This is an example from 8 years ago of why the Jacoby rule is stupid.

Blue is not even favored to win (44% GWC) but since he has significant gammon chances it's to his advantage to turn the cube so that gammons count. Without Jacoby it would be a massive blunder to cube.

The question is whether white should beaver. XG rollout confirms it's a beaver, but it's very close.

Note that if blue fans (16/36) white has a cash / borderline TG.
