Hi,

I was checking out Caribbean stud poker math here - /games/caribbean-stud-poker/
I noticed that instead of using hard math and probabilities the results were simulated. What was the reason for that? Also, for the simulation was the simplified strategy used where the player always fold with less than the dealer's qualifying hand (ace/king) or the advanced strategy that is described here (/games/caribbean-stud-poker/optimal-strategy/)?

There are times where the math is so horribly complex that simulation is the way to go.

This is probably one of those times.

That makes sense. Do you know what kind of strategy was used in the simulation?
