This came up in the Chouette on Friday.  David Rockwell and I both passed when we were doubled, but we were not entirely sure.  We put the position in to ExtremeGammon, and XGR+ said it was a clear take.  I looked carefully at the position to try to see why we were off on this one, but David did something else....he rolled it out 3,000 times and the result was a clear pass with 100 percent confidence.

I am a huge believer in XG, but this is one of many positions where you simply have to do a full rollout to be sure of the answer.
