Not much to write about unfortunately. We got a terrible distribution with five Sixes, five Eights and zero Sevens. Not to mention zero turnovers. At least we got a few in-suit builds.
Bart mentioned that only 5% of distributions would be worse than what we actually have. I would be interested in how he actually measured that. Did he choose to focus on Sixes, Sevens and Eights before the hand or during the hand? Is he measuring the worst differential between any two consecutive ranks or three consecutive ranks? Is he applying the cryptographic Keccak-256 hash function to our game state and looking for any series of 81 digits that form a valid Sudoku? I brought up similar issues in an earlier post.
The other problem worth mentioning is four Kings are already in play. Change them to all Queens and our prospects will be much better (even though we still don’t get a turnover). The only bright spot is it is illegal for the computer to send over a very inconvenient Backgammon doubling cube centred on ‘2’.
