Description

Either way, these players are using this knowledge to make tactical and strategic decisions and also for doubling considerations. Its neural network was trained using temporal difference learning applied to data generated from self-play. A "running game" describes a strategy of moving as quickly as possible around the board, and is most successful when a player is already ahead in the race.

Some players are comfortable taking chances with a small lead of one or two rolls, but others will want to have a more significant lead before committing to using the racing edge. To apply the rule of 8 you take the difference in the pip count between the two players and divide that value by 8. Woolsey said of the program that "There is no question in my mind that its positional judgment is far better than mine. An example of a "raccoon" is the following: White doubles Black to 2 points, Black accepts then beavers the cube to 4 points; White, confident of a win, raccoons the cube to 8 points, while Black retains the cube. In this instance, Yellow has a lead of just over three rolls, which is a considerable advantage, especially considering Red is re-entering from the bar.For example, a player leading a 9-point match by a score of 7–5 would be very reluctant to turn the doubling cube, as their opponent could take and make a costless redouble to 4, placing the entire outcome of the match on the current game.

In 1981 Hugh Sconyers wrote a computer program that solved all positions with nine checkers or fewer for both sides. Players start with no counters on the board, and both players move in the same direction to bear off in a common home board. Together, the three are referred to as Tavli and are usually played one after the other; game being three, five, or seven points. Some players choose to include this rule throughout the game but often set a limit as to how high the cube can go off of automatic doubling.

Diversification" refers to a complementary tactic of placing one's own checkers in such a way that more numbers are useful. The player throwing the higher number now moves his checkers according to the numbers showing on both dice. It is the most widespread Western member of the large family of tables games, whose ancestors date back nearly 5,000 years to the regions of Mesopotamia and Persia. The Monte Carlo tournament draws hundreds of players and spectators, and is played over the course of a week. A particularly successful priming effort may lead to a "blitz", which is a strategy of covering the entire home board as quickly as possible while keeping one's opponent on the bar.

The Murphy rule is not an official rule in backgammon and is rarely, if ever, seen in use at officially sanctioned tournaments. Archaeological evidence suggests that early backgammon sets were made from a variety of materials, including wood, bone, and ivory. A "backgame" is a strategy that involves holding two or more anchors in an opponent's home board while being substantially behind in the race.

A checker may be moved only to an open point, one that is not occupied by two or more opposing checkers.
