A good test position for XG3 beta?

Posted By: Timothy Chow

Below is a variant of a reference position that I learned from Mochy. XGR+ rates White's chances significantly more pessimistically than the 4-ply/4-ply rollout below suggests. I suspect that even the 4-ply/4-ply rollout isn't making the most of White's containment chances.

I hear that XG3 beta is supposed to be significantly better than XG2 at containment. Perhaps someone with access to XG3 beta will be interested in doing a high-level rollout of the position below? I'm guessing that its verdict will be that White can take.
