0.93 is an outstanding PR.

I think it points out a fascinating feature of team play -- there are some good players on these teams, but very few Giants. Certainly, nobody can play sub 1.0 PR on a regular basis. Yet, the collective brainpower can turn in terrifically well played backgammon. Blunders of oversight and miscounting are virtually impossible -- whereas one player might commit an egregious error of oversight, it basically can't happen to enough people to win a vote.

With this in mind, the errors that DO get made are even more interesting. They say something about the collective understanding (or misunderstanding) of a particular position. The MOST interesting positions are the ones that lots of people get wrong.
