Mat file

Fri Mar 13, 2015 10:49 am

from the time i played on MSN i have a utility that reads the result (win/loss) from the matfile and put it in a database. In the mat-file created by GreedyGammon the line like " Wins 4 points and the match" is missing. Is it possible to add the win match line ?

Yes, there is this line missing and sometimes the last move is also missing. Something to do with how the match is recorded. Will look into it. It has been neglected as it has little effect on the analysis other than sometimes the luck factor when the last roll is a double. In any case it should be fixed.
Backgammon is a luck/skill game similar to card games like poker and gin rummy. Estimating and maximizing your winning probability is key
