XGR++ versus n-ply for bearoffs

Posted By: Timothy Chow
Date: Thursday, 27 November 2014, at 3:43 p.m.

Recently, Taper_Mike posted XGR++ evaluations for three cube decisions in the Akiko-Kit match. I was slightly surprised that he chose XGR++ for this purpose. First of all, common sense suggests that a full rollout would be more accurate, and would take no time at all. Secondly, and perhaps more interestingly, I thought that 7-ply analysis might actually be more accurate than XGR++. I played around with the first cube position that Taper_Mike posted and the results are shown below. This isn't much data but I think the results are suggestive.
