At both TMG and PartyGammon (don't know about others) one can set various
table stakes limits for money games. For example, I could be playing at $5 a
point with a limit of $20 per game. Naturally this means that not only are
backgammons useless, but recubes take on a very different nature as well. If
I set the limit to $25 or $30, it becomes more subtle yet. All this will
also severely affect the respective checker play too. 

I was asking myself how one might analyze this, and realized that in a sense
it is a bit like match play with the Jacoby rule tossed in, and no Crawfords
to consider. 

I'm not a mathematician, so forgive me if I don't realize what I'm
requesting, but would it be possible to add this support? It would be nice
to have this be a manual setting so that one could train against GNU,
testing the conditions and learning about the effects it has on the
