FFM17 - Herd win
« on: February 06, 2014, 12:52:27 PM »
It turned out that the Herd didn't need to worry about filling gaps - a last-gasp double stole the bearoff and they win 6-1. Congratulations to the Herd, and thankyou to all involved. Elmicho, we hope you'll join us on this side of the board for the next match!

Final position and match file to follow as soon as I get home from work..

Thanks all - it was something else.
I really did my best here and blowed a few fuses trying to get out of the hopeless positions I had to play due to sick doubles - but all in vain.
It was, however, an enjoyable experience.
Be good

Well, that was quite the exciting finish.  elmicho's final roll was a 55 to leave only two checkers on his ace point, and we needed big doubles to save the win (44,44,66).  We got the boxes to deliver the Coup de grâce.

Excellent play on both sides, with elmicho notching a PR of 1.72 and the Herd rating 2.20.  The difference was the 1.4 equity gain due to the dice.

well played ..but Herd was much luckier than elmicho. here is my personal analysis result :

   GAME1:                            elmicho              herd               
Luck rating                           None                 Good dice, man!     
----------------------------------------------------------------
   GAME2:                             elmicho              herd               
Luck rating                           Bad dice, man!       Go to bed           
----------------------------------------------------------------
   GAME3:                            elmicho              herd               
Luck rating                           None                 Go to Las Vegas
