    Zenfighter: Re: Accuracy of Halves' SCORES confirmed

    Halves figures double-checked, already:

    Cacarulo?s software: (half deck estimation with tags doubled)

     
    1-12 $38.04 $37.97 (CVCX) dif = $0.07 (due to the length of both sims)

    1-16 $43.96 $44.00 (CVCX) dif = $0.04 (same as above)



    Noticeable discrepancies with Zen?s SCORES. Possibilities:

    1) I?ve done something strange with the Zen?s settings.

    2) He has done something strange with the Zen?s settings.

    3) There is something strange with CVCX and the Zen count.

    4) There is something strange with Cac?s one and/or SBA and the Zen count.

    Food for thought.

    Norm Wattenberger: Some more sims

    I ran the same sims that Cac ran with CVData. Surely enough the same conclusions were reached. I also generated new indexes with CVData and ran the sims again. The Halves sims improved slightly and beat Zen in some cases. However, the difference was tiny. As Cac ran twice as many rounds I would go with his sims. In any case, Halves and Zen with these rules and penetration appear to perform very closely indeed.

    Thanks Norm for verifying the sims.

    Sincerely,
    Cac
