The comments marked DZ are my comments after the match while looking at the evaluations and rollouts. Also, I have rearranged some of the comments by the panel and others to try to associate them with the decisions they described. I might have made some mistakes in doing so.
The rollouts were performed using an Athlon 1.4 GHz processor, and took about a week of computing time since I used 3-ply rollouts, mostly truncated at the bearoff database. I rolled out all positions in which Snowie evaluations indicated that a player had made a 0.020 error, plus cube actions and some other positions of interest. For reporting purposes, the blunder threshold was set at 0.080, lower than the default.
