Follow-up in 2020: I scrapped the playouts in favor of a Voronoi-based heuristic, along with a few move sampling biases. Still no graph abstractions. After finally correcting a timing bug, my bot is in top 50, and I hope it will stay there. I believe a few more tricks will be needed to compete for top 10, though. Note that there is still one Python player above me on the ranking, who probably knows some tricks.
