OK - I haven't looked at BasicCubefulRollout in detail and I naively
assumed that it would use 1 0 0 0 0 0 when it concluded the player on
roll would double the opponent out. I've also been assumming that for
cubeful rollouts, when games are rolled out to completion, the cubeful
equity was adjusted by crediting the winner with a win/gammon/bg and
calculating the delta to the accumulating cubeful equity based on the
current cube value. And for games being truncated that the evaluation
at the truncation point was given a cubeful adjustment and then
factored in to the accumulated rollout stats.
