The biggest problem I see is where to bootstrap from. For the more
typical style of play, Tesauro pub_eval plays surprisingly well -
where I define well as "rollouts based on play are better than
evaluations" - which means you can incrementally improve your
evaluations, which is basically what I did starting from gnubg 0.0.

Now, can you write a (simple?) playing strategy which plays this
position (both sides) that will not contain too many horrible/obvious
mistakes - i.e such a strategy that we can get meaningful rollouts
