The evaluations in the first attachment look normal to me. But when you add an extra checker to bear off (attachment #2) our gammon chances with 5/4 rise from .001 to .006! Clearly they should still be less than if we'd taken two off since 3-1 and 3-2 fail to bear two off.

I know these numbers are tiny, so feel free to ignore this. I'm only reporting it in case someone likes to research this sort of stuff.
