- Statistics on trumps splits in BBO
- Personally, if I flip a coin 10 times and it falls on tails 10 times, no doubt I will be suspicious of the coin! Same thing in a casino's craps game: suspicion is that the dices' center of gravity is shifted towards the 6, which then has more chances ...

- You look like a lady who has access to the BBO database. If this is the case, could you provide that access to me?

- Whatever my opinion is, it is based on mathematics. What is yours based on?

- To those who question the statistical significance of the observations I made on BBO's trumps splits, I've digged into the theory of statistics and came up with the following. A z-test is a statistical test for which the distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis can ...

- Some readers have questionned the statistical significance of the observations I made on BBO's trumps splits, calling them "anecdotal". So of course, I've digged into the theory of statistics and came up with the following (I've added this as a reply somewhere, I'm repeating it here ...

- A z-test is a statistical test for which the distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis can be approximated by a normal distribution. If we consider the null hypothesis as "BBO's occurrences of 3-2 splits follow the laws of probability", then we can use a one-proportion z-test ...

- My stats courses at school are quite far back in my memory (close to 40 years), but I'll investigate and come back with an answer. I think a Chi-Squared Test might apply, because I remember it is used to determine the adequacy of observed data versus theoretically expected data ...

- Thanks for your offer Richard. In your Recent Hands, you could note, for the side who played the hand, the break(s) that occurred on each hand for 8, 9 and 10 cards fit (if a hand has a double-fit, please note both breaks), then paste in here the bunch ...
- Statistics on trumps splits in BBO
- Your English is not bad at all! Indeed, considering a Binomial Distribution with p = 0.678 and n = 609, we get a Standard Deviation Sqrt(p(1-p)/n) of 1.9%. In BBO, the occurrence of 3-2 breaks, based on 609 eight-cards fits, is .639 rather than .678; that's ...
