In Response To: World V. DK Final Match (Stick)
On move 2, the world team's 4-4, I was very surprised that making the 4 point was only a .015 error, as unstacking the midpoint and making the 9 seemed right to me. So I rolled it out and found that it is a .033 error after the rollout. Even then, I am surprised it is not bigger.
One of the biggest changes I have made in the past year is to pay more attention to unstacking heavily stacked points.
I did a little testing of this theory with this position. If I took the 5th checker off the midpoint, almost no matter where I put it, it became right to make the 4 point instead. This is often the case when I try to determine if unstacking is a major contributor to the decision.
