Proving honesty of tournament organization

Hello,

 

I am the author of the BigDeal dealing program. Currently I am in the process of writing both documentation and software to solve the following (non)problem. 

 

After a tournament there is sometimes gossip or rumours or accusation about the played hands. Were they random or were they rigged? Currently there is not a lot the organization can do. If the players do not trust them they cannot prove they are innocent. Using cryptographic techniques like used in BigDeal itself it is possible, with a little bit of effort and tiny pieces of software, for the organization to prove its innocence(assuming they are!).

 

If there is interest I will publish the article and later the software will be published, probably in BigDeal 1.3 coming out soon.

 

Hans
