I'm curious about your setup for basic strategy with cut card. I assume this is based on a simulator after a gazillion hands (millions is not enough). Where do you have the cut card for a double deck game and how many players at the table? Our simulator is in the ballpark but a little different than yours. Thanks in advance.
We've only run 7 billion hands so far, but we're finding something interesting I didn't expect.
Double deck, Basic Strategy, DAS allowed, Dlr hits S17, no surrender, 1 card on split aces, cut card 45 from end:
4 players at table: EV=-.428%
1 player at table: EV=-.443%
Based on the t-test, 95% confidence the difference is real. The difference is only 1 bet every 7,000 hands but I'm having trouble believing playing with others at the table makes any difference. Has anyone else run a similar analysis?
p.s. Do not trust Microsoft random number generator! It is not good enough for things like this.
The version we are running right now stays with double deck BS to the end. I'm not sure I'm interpreting your "Effect of Removal" comment correctly, but it would be interesting to look at the difference if we start playing single deck BS at the end.
We also see a slight sensitivity to deck penetration. One thought I have is that when the cut card comes out, there is deeper penetration on that last hand with more players in the game and that makes an iota of a difference. Sorry if that is restating your comment in different words.
We were hoping to match the WoO house edge calculator before we turn on more advanced features.
Thanks QFIT!! A quick 20 billion. Love it. Is that a proprietary program you're using?
