Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Calling All Robot Experts
To generalize (perhaps overly so), in my experience the bots do not do well at ranking which plays to make. In theory, they should know the difference between a mathematical lock and a play that is likely good from a simulation. So they may take an inference that a suit ...
A Fun Double Dummy Problem
@David Burn Your beer comment is about 20 years stale. Yes, perhaps a few bars in the US still serve awful beer, but I'd wager that even you would find the quality and diversity of American beers to your liking. Sadly, most of the best ones probably don't ...
