The luck is defined as the value of the position after the roll assuming the

BGBlitz but I'm sure anyone else doing it the same)

GnuBG calculates it the same was as described here by Frank. The actual play made is not considered. Luck = The difference in equity between the BEST Play (not the play made) and the average equity of all possible outcomes.

A good article to read on the matter is by Douglas Zare: http://www.bkgm.com/articles/Zare/AMeasureOfLuck.html
