I wondered why truncated rollouts / XGR++ differ from full rollouts by so much. I think the key is the evaluation of the running play after the opponent misses, e.g. with a 61. The full rollout in the left diagram differs from the truncated one in the right diagram by more than 0.060.

However, in the following cubeless rollouts, full and truncated agree. So I guess XG either underestimates the amount of cube vig against the holding game, or it misplays the cube for the holding game player in the full rollout.
