An interesting round. We managed to clear all face-down cards in columns 2 and 5. But our distribution is terrible with a severe deficiency in Vitamin Q and Lucky Sevens. Still, a lot can change with the next ten cards and games are rarely mathematically lost before the last deal.
Bart has done an excellent job in maintaining the histogram of all ranks and performing some wacky and wonderful calculations. Note that one bad game does not an accusation of biased RNG make – especially considering we won the previous game involving Red Blue and Green. In any case, expert-level play is more than number crunching, Excel Spreadsheeting and inventing terms like Dow Jones Whine Index. Hopefully the next round will give Bart the opportunity to showcase his improving skills.
Unfortunately, IM Bug has had a serious accident and won’t be contributing much to the remainder of this game. I will not elaborate on the details – that task is up to IM Bug if he so chooses.
Digressions aside, Bart is playing reasonably well, although it’s admittedly hard to rot13(shpx) things up when our options were limited throughout all of rounds 1 and 2.
Round 3 coming soon – watch this space 😊
