    I’ve been using Extreme Gammon 2 to play against at home. I’ve noticed that sometimes, even when I win, it tells me that I was a “distracted” player. Of course, I know what the word distracted means, but what does it mean in this setting? How does the program determine that I’m “distracted”?

    Thanks,

    I think it is somewhat “tongue in cheek”, the main point being that you didn’t play that game very well. Hopefully, someone will give you the more correct, technical answer. Personally, I don’t like the wordy XG evaluations. I think the PR speaks for itself. If I’m under 8, I’m fairly happy with my play.

    If you go to “options”–“expert mode” then the program just gives you the technical info. I also get tired of the sarcasm but Xavier explained that it is not the intention to ridicule but give you the cold hard facts on your play performance. Distracted is 1 step above beginner. I also have seen a 26 play game with 1 doubling error ( blunder) and it gave me a distracted rating on the cube play. It drives home the importance of the cube for me. Hope this helps- Karl

    Thanks, I think you are right. I’ve had similar experiences. I think I’m playing a great game, won it, and in the end it rates my game as “Casual Player”. Or I’ve played a game where I felt I wasn’t doing well at all and I’ll end up being rated as “Expert”. Those ratings are all over the the board (no pun intended).
