My indices for insurance were algebraically derived as well. I ran the sim just to see how good they are. So, what I'm trying to say is that we have a difference in the algebraic algorithm.

Sincerely,
Cac 2. ## Zenfighter: Re:With a pocket calculator, then

m = -7.69231

After removing t,5,a:

m = -8.16326 reversing the sign:

m = 8.16326

inner product after removing dealer's and player's cards ?

i = 90.04551

t = 51/49 *((-1)+( 1)+( -1)) = -51/49

p = sum of squares; after removing 3 cards, p = 37 (for hi-lo)

So we have:

mp/i + t= (8.16326*37)/90.04551 - (51/49) = 2.3135

Note that a direct attack yields:

(7.69231*40)/90.04551 - (51/49) = 2.3763

That's easier, but not precisely better, IMHO.

Your calculations are right. The problem is that Snyder's formula (mp/i+t) have been proven to be not correct. You might want to try with Moss algebraic formula instead.

T5 v A = +2.4 which is closer to +2.36
(+2.357) than to +2.31.

Cac 5. ## Zenfighter: Re: I see where the problem is

Columns

a) Hand

b) Pete Moss formula with the aid of Ted Jennsen spreadsheet. Reid's contribution should be mention also.

c) Snyder' formula with single precison EoR's.

d) Karel floored indexes. Precision sigma = 3.5

e) Same as d but rounded.

Cac, I read the thread at bjmath a while back ago. I accept that the methodology is fine,
(a little akward for my taste), but I haven't see any motives so far to change my mind, not with indexes, where rounding approximations can take the money, as you know.

Sincerely

Well, if you're satisfied with the approximations then I can't argue with that. At least you have been warned I haven't done a comparison between the two methods so I can't tell you exactly where the big differences are. I know for example that Snyder's formula doesn't work with unbalanced systems like TKO.

Sincerely,
Cac 7. ## Zenfighter: Re:Fine for balanced one level counts only

That's the reason I use SBA indexes for my Halves :-)

Thanks for all, Cac.

Sincerely
