about me

Website developer at the EBU. I used to be a fairly serious player and had a couple of successes, but I don't play very much any more.

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
" will not be able to reprogram itself at the table to adjust to how aggressively or conservatively the opponents are bidding." I claim it doesn't have to and it would still be playing optimally.
I'm not saying there is no disclosure - the rules of the game still have to be enforced. The program would know everything that the opponents have agreed. But I don't think it needs to track and react to non-partnership tendencies. For example, let's say you are a ...
I'm not sure this is true, actually. A perfect bridge program can't play better than it does. If it adjusts its strategy based on the tendencies of the opponents, then it will no longer be playing perfectly and could therefore be exploited by smart opposition. If the opposition ...
Simulation help!
Kieran - it was a double-dummy simulation. I assumed that's what Thomas was asking for, but I guess maybe not.
Simulation help!
I'll answer the actual question, Thomas, rather than be snarky about your methods! It's basically a wash. Over 1000 simulations: Neither make 310 times Both make 262 times 5 makes while 3NT fails 218 times 3NT makes while 5 fails 210 times

Gold Cup final stages - controversial end to semi-final
Pro-tip for vugraph operators: use the keyboard, not the mouse. With a bit of practice it's quicker and more accurate and you don't have to look at the screen so you can keep your focus on the table. It's also usually quieter.
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
So Anthony owes you £463,440?
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
Link the hand record or it didn't happen. This seems even more made up than your other examples...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
So your definition is not merely "FG or 23-24 BAL" - you've just added another requirement. And I'm sure I could pick holes in the new version if I wanted to, but I agree that this is a straw man, just like your extreme two-suiters are. It took a ...
