[Computer-go] evaluating number of wins versus looses

When performing a montecarlo search, we end up with a number of wins
and number of looses for a position on the board.

What is now the proven methology for comparing these values?

I tried the method described here:
...which not only looks at how much more wins than looses there were
for a position but also the total number for that position. So that a
difference x with 10 playouts may be evaluated lower than a difference
y with 11 playouts, even if x > y.
This does not seem to give good results altough other factors may be in
play here (my program is in it's infant stage).
