It's extremly fast!

The one side rollout was coded by Joseph.

It rolls out out a race position and for each side, and stores
the distribution of rolls needed to get all men off. Combining
these two distributions for each side, just like the one side
bearoff db, gives the win probability.

OSR was used to train the race neural net.

See how osr and 2ply compare here:

OSR must still be considered a estimate, but it's usually
a really good estimate.
