Has anyone ever
tried to tackle the subject of measuring complexity in backgammon?
Firstly you could take out moves / cube actions "that are completely
unimportant". You include opening moves and maybe even replies amongst
those? After that maybe you could use the move filters within BG
software to assign a value. So let's say using gnubg analysis no plays
get analysed at 2-ply as it's trivial then that move gets discarded.
After that you could assign some kind of values based on how many moves
and how big an equity difference they are away from the best play at
2-ply to reach a figure and divide it by the total plays. I'm no
mathematician so wouldn't know how to weight these factors etc. Any
thoughts or does no one really care?
