"The last line states the best considered cube action. In the figure
above, GNU Backgammon considers the best cube action to be No double,
take. When percentage number right to the proper cube action, is a
number which indicates the /bluff/ potential. It is the necessary
percentage chance you think you can bluff your opponent into passing the
cube to make the double theoretically correct. This number is only
available when the position is considered No double, take or Too good to
double, pass."

In your case it would mean that if you think your opponent will drop the
cube at least 15.2% of the time then it would be a correct double.

Your post made it onto the mailing list multiple times.
