Just wanted to put this out there...

It's surely occurred to some people that it would be interesting to see what would happen if one were to apply "AlphaZero methods" to backgammon. I suspect that doing so would finally plug the one glaring hole in the repertoire of the current leading bots (i.e., GNU and eXtreme Gammon), namely superbackgames and associated positions (snakes, rolling primes all the way around the board, containment plays with checkers scattered everywhere).

If anyone is inclined to put in the effort, I think that this would be an extremely interesting and valuable project.
