Hello fellow Backgammon Addicts!!


Ward adjusted pipcount methods:
1) Take pipcount
2) Add 2 for each extra checker
3) Add 2 for each over 2 on ace point
4) Add 1 for each over 3 on deuce point
5) subtract one for each fewer home board points
6) and .5 per extra checker outsite home board

-5, /7 round down
-- 62 --
/10, +1, round up

the leader can redouble if his lead is 2 pips shy of the trailer's point of last take.

Point of last take for the trailer is when he is down a number of pips equal to the number of rolls to go minus 3

Efective Pip Count : 7n + 1

Neil Kaz's quick match equity table
top row is number of points the trailer has to go
bottom row is number times the score difference over/under 50% to determine ME
