 Rollouts of Opening Replies By Tom Keith

 When your opponent wins the opening roll, there are fifteen possible rolls. Those fifteen rolls can be played in perhaps a total 33 reasonable ways. After that, you can roll 21 different numbers in reply. That makes a total of 33 × 21 = 693 different positions. Rollouts for all 693 positions appear on the pages that follow (a total 2218 plays are rolled out). A rollout determines the best way to play a roll by simulating the game on computer. Whichever play wins more games is deemed to be correct according to the rollout. As long enough games are rolled out, the luck of the dice plays only a small part in determining the winning play in a rollout. You can find more information here on the rollout settings used.
