Backgammon EquivalenttoMoneyGame Equity Not Just for Those Good at Math
Backgammon EquivalenttoMoneyGame Equity is used in match play, to compare the size
of errors in different games. Each single losing game is assigned a value of 1, while
every single winning game is assigned a value of +1. Backgammon equity is the value of a particular player within the backgammon game. It
is typically understood as the sum of all the values given for the possible outcomes from
any certain position on the board that a player is has been placed in during the course of
the game. This sum is then multiplied by the probability of each of the moves actually
taking place. Simply put, backgammon EquivalenttoMoneyGame Equity is each player's
probability of winning the game. Each participant is then able to place a wager on the
result. Backgammon Equity is one of several kinds of such wagers, including Cubeless
Equity, Cubeful Equity and Match Equity. Match plays are the most common types of games
in which an equity setup is used.
In a match play, two players will play a number of games until one of them acquires a
predetermined number of points for each game won. Backgammon Equity corresponds to the
probability each player possesses of winning the match from their current positions within
each game until one of them has won the match. Sometimes, to take a chance on this
probability, the doubling cube can be used during a match and the assigned value of
winning or losing a game is based on the cube. Backgammon Equity places a high emphasis
on strategy over a number of successive games.
