Probability of getting hit when ? Next opp roll ?
Gnubg displays in the lower left corner the number
of hitting rolls your
opponent has with the current configuration (at least
in the GUI version).
For example, if your first roll is a 62 and you play
24/16, it shows:
Return hits: 14
22 (no hit: 7 rolls)
this means that the 1st blot can be hit with 14 rolls
over 36, the second
with 22 rolls over 36 and overall your opponent has
7 rolls that can not hit.
Notice however that the fact your opponent has X rolls
that will hit does not
imply that, even if he/she rolls one of these, he/she
will necessarily hit.
