That requires a new evaluation, so if you want both the cube action for
both money game and for the actual score you'll have to wait twice as

But I may add a button that brings up a nwe window where you can set
match scores, cube values etc. to check the decision at other scores.

Do you want different colors indicating cube action or indicating in
which window you are?  Green if in doubling window or green for "double,

The first can be calculated "free", whereas the last requires many
evaluations.... Both graphs could be interesting, but one should be
aware that calculating the entire, say, 21x21 grid at 2-ply will take
441 times the time for 1 2-ply evaluation.
