about me

I'm a former professor of computer science; now I work at Twitch trying to pretend video games are a job.   Or something like that.

Sometimes I build websites. I built the one you're looking at now.  If you find any bugs, I'm pretty sure they're Steve's fault.

Country
United States of America

ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
It's entirely possible that something got lost in translation somewhere, I guess I just don't care. Since it carries none of the prestige of a "true" GLM qualifier, whether it's a nabc thing or not is to me a complete curiosity. If it were being billed as ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Only to people who somehow have gotten the mistaken idea in their head that "NABC title" means "Thing That Pays A Bunch Of Platinum Points And Qualifies You For Grand Life Master", completely ignoring things like the 0-1500 Spingold, NAP Flights B and C, 0-10000 Mixed Swiss, and the whole ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
" ever there was false advertising, surely this qualifies. The event pays a whopping (NOT) 48 masterpoints to the overall winner -- 16 Gold and 32 Red. ZERO Platinum points which are awarded in "real" NABC events." How many platinum points are awarded to winners of the NAP flight C?

There are a variety of other reasons why it might appear that GIB is thinking "longer", such as server load and network lag; anyone who attempts to draw inferences from GIB's tempo certainly does so at their own peril.

If it were actually inuits in Alaska, I would agree, but it's GIB on BBO, something every single player has easy, constant, inexpensive access to. If you travel to a nationals and run into a pair playing transfer responses to 1, but you've never seen that before ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
If you played the same boards, look at how the victors played / bid the boards. If you didn't play the same boards, then that's normal variance, not something weird about robots.
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
The infrequent opponent doesn't have that information because he's infrequent, not because it's hidden. If you want to get better at the game, play the game more. As for all contestants playing the same boards, sorry, I thought we were talking about ways in which this event ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
"I could not have done better" --> "129 people did better than I did". Obviously that doesn't make sense. Try looking at how the other people played/bid on the same boards?
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
"The infrequent human opponent of the robot does not have the same information about the robot opponents as does the frequent human opponent of the robot." That's like saying "the infrequent player of matchpoints does not have the same information as does the frequent player of matchpoints". It's ...
ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
Disclosed to whom? It's not like in a face-to-face tournament you're entitled to know the agreements of the people at the other tables to say "oh, jeez, most of the people in my section are really aggressive and will probably accept this invite" You're only entitled to ...
