A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
Averages can be misleading quantities to work with. Assuming that because both Declarer and Defenders play DD that these two unrealistic assumptions will always roughly cancel each other out in the long run is wrong. Consider two 4/3/3/3 hands with no 4/4 fit which contain all ...

A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
Rainer Hermann says 'However, over many random deals the average double dummy result will come very close to the average actual table result for most contracts.' And where did Rainer find that piece of information? With generalisations like that 'Fake news' seems almost trustworthy. DD results mean exactly what they ...
A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
I am in the camp that is very dubious of this type of DD simulation. What does it mean that say 92% of 1000 hands make when declarer is always assumed to finesse a queen the right way and drop singleton honours and defenders always lead the right suit and ...
EBL Ruling on Disqualified Teams/Pairs
Not correct Nedju. 'Historic' cheating can be detected now in much the same way as an old murder case can be solved, because the DNA from way back can only now be properly analysed. What might have appeared inconclusive evidence 6-10 years ago - getting singleton/doubleton ruffing situations right - hitting ...
EBL Ruling on Disqualified Teams/Pairs
That clarification has been on the EBL site for a couple of weeks. The issue is 'Will there be any historic disqualifications if the powers that be insist on video evidence when there is none?' When the current appeals etc are over (if ever?) can we expect a deluge of ...
EBL Ruling on Disqualified Teams/Pairs
I hope the phrase 'all EBL events' means what is says.So if evidence emerges of historic cheating, from however far back, and/or a pair/team is disqualified for any other reason then this rule is not limited to 'as of, and including, Opatija 2014'. Is that so Jan?
EBL Convicts Fantoni-Nunes
Of course there is evidence from way back even if it is not video evidence. Statistical evidence is abundant. When players who have been found to be cheating NOW are shown to have as good if not even better results (Titles,Results, Butlers) in previous years, then either you assume ...
Why is this 3NT not a Big Favourite to make?
Nicely rearranged Joshua to make 3NT a favourite. Certainly with two balanced hands if you always bid 3NT with 4 Aces 2 Kings and Two Queens and nothing else that could be considered as even 1/2 a point then you will hope for this layout but the other, I ...
Why is this 3NT not a Big Favourite to make?
Hi Patrick. Yes with x x x x, K x, A Q x, A x x x opposite A x x x, A Q x, K x, x x x x 3NT would certainly be odds on to make with the two 4/4 fits. Unfortunately I would probably be ...
