Again by random sampling?

Are there certain moves(*) that bring games to an end earlier, or
certain moves(*) that make games go on longer? Would weighting them
appropriately in your random playouts help?

*: or move sequences. E.g. playing a stone in atari that the opponent
then does not capture. (No idea if that makes a game longer or shorter,
just meaning it as an example.)
