[Computer-go] Liberty races in playouts

Hi,

I wonder which ideas are around for liberty races in playouts.

What nicego does: it reweights the random moves in the playout to make 
sure, that each point is played with roughly the same probability.

This approach tries to solve the problem, that local playout rules 
modify this probability, as this leads to more than one point ending in 
playing at a liberty in a liberty race.

But this just "fixes" the problem that were introduced due to local 
playout rules....


What are you doing, and does it work?
