I'm sure many users use gnubg simply to play against as self training.
One issue that for me doesn't help with training is that gnubg will obviously always play the same opening move or reply etc in the same given position.
In real life backgammon obviously this isn't the case.
As a simple example for money gnubg plays 52 13/8 13/11.
Rollouts show this to be an error, and I'm guessing most humans would not play this move the majority of the time.
Also rollouts have shown many opening plays and replies are very close in equity so as not be be considered an error.

My request therefore is to have an option to randomize the first N moves within equity X.

I would suggest something like a move filter:

E.g. Randomize first N moves within X plus additional N moves within Y.

Hopefully I'm not the only user that would find this feature useful.
