This is the third and final part of our survey of responses to opening rolls according to Gnu Backgammon and Snowie, judged by long rollouts on Stick Rice's site.
For the opening roll itself, and responses to 2-1 through 4-3, see Part 1.
For responses to 5-1 through 6-1, see Part 2.
Again, I won't mention every interesting decision, but if I skip a decision, you can assume that Snowie 3-ply and Gnu 2-ply evaluations agree with long rollouts enough to choose the same play.
