Thanks Christian for your answer.
So if I understand correctly, and correct me if I'm wrong, GNUBG doesn't 'think' what would be the best move but chooses a move that is in it's database? I would assume that if this is the case it will need a very very big database...

There is three readily available backgammon programs that play at
approximately the same level: Snowie, GNU Backgammon and BGBlitz. The
two first probably play a bit better, but BGBlitz steadily improves.

No the net only gets better with intensive and educated training, and
nobody does that at the moment, but in most common positions there is
little room for improvement.

Hello guys,

I have a very basic question about the level of GNUBG.
A friend told me that GNUBG won some sort of computer BG tournament so I got interested, read a bit and found out that it uses a neural network. Does it mean that my downloaded GNUBG will get better and better as long as I play it, or does the program gets better in time and my downloaded version will
get better when it will be updated?
(I guess it's the latter one but I'm not sure)
