But what it the purpose here? Is it so that weak players can make better cube decisions? That means they understand match equity stuff but they they probably aren't so weak anymore.
The proximate cause for my asking was John O'Hagan's post where he uses a standard MET to justify the cube action against "an even player." Implicitly, I think he's talking about players in the 3 to 5 PR range. That's not what we normally call weak players, but it's much weaker than the bots are, and I'm wondering how robust the assumption is that the chances of a 4.0 PR player vs. a 4.0 PR player are the same as the chances of a bot vs. a bot at the lopsided scores considered in John's post.
