TC "I would not have expected 3/2* 3/1 to lose that many more games."

You have to define "many". Here the shots are the same, but the added checker costs me about 9% more games cubeless. As we see XG says that hitting looses 2.7% more games. Well that's .3 x 9%. I was concerned that effectively it would be worse than that since Ray owns the cube.

Here's a template position for learning the cubeless effects of extra checkers borne off when CO. Of course, in reality the spares aren't usually this good, but the relative differences with fewer or more checkers remaining won't change much.
