Re: Random Deal Generator

Sorry. I'm a paleontologist and I don't pontificate much. At least in public.

3. to speak in a pompous or dogmatic manner: Did he pontificate about the responsibilities of a good citizen?

Re: Random Deal Generator

Me: "Hello wall, I've got a question. Why don't these cards look anything like I get in real life?" Wall: "The cards are, what the cards are, do not question the cards" Me: "But they don't seem right and I want to know why." Wall: "Silly boy, our Monkeys deal the cards perfectly random." Me: "But Mo...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Testy, testy. Boy, try to get some answers and all I get are snide remarks. Try to defend myself and I get snide remarks. Keep asking the same questions and I get yelled at. I see a pattern here. I am not asking any questions different than the ones I hear at every table I play. Yet you are chastisi...

Re: Random Deal Generator

If you really are playing perfectly and you still cannot win then post the text files of the games that you think could not be won. Don't just hand pick the rare 3 handed game. If Garry is right and you double lead offsuit without leading trump at certain times, then you probably don't grasp the co...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Gart, i am going to say one more thing on this subject. We all get the same bad cards at some stage at different times. Seeing the code won't help you one little bit, we don't want to see it, it won't make any difference to me. If you were a top player you would be at the top and you would basicall...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Gart.. while it's not the programming.. it is the output... Look under the Spades forum... info on 5000 deals is in db format over there. You're doing smoke and mirrors again. I wanna see the code. The code is where the logic is, where the decisions are made. I want to see the code that says: If te...

Re: Random Deal Generator

I am a programmer and program for a living.

I would love to see the code. Random generators are not that complicated. It would not take much to tell if your code was solid or not.

Re: Random Deal Generator

Oh man i give up, you are far too negative for me Gart. Good luck. :) :) Eennie Meenie The G Gosh that was easy. And I'm not negative. If I was negative I'd be saying..."hardwood hates me and deals me sucky hands because they hate me and the whole thing is rigged against me". I'd wear a tin-foil sk...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Gart, just answer me this. Why are the players at the top now, stay at the top? They also get bad cards, hell i get horrendous cards but as DUST said, you work through it. I know for a 100% fact of all the players up there, NOT one even thinks of cheating, i know you didn't say they did. but they h...

Re: Random Deal Generator

A good player makes things happen with bad cards. Bah, that's rubbish, pollyana talk you use while holding hands and singing kumbaya around a campfire late at night. There's no way to make good from a bad hand when you don't even get a chance to call it or order it up. Or in one instance where they...

Re: Random Deal Generator

I think one reason complain about the deals on HW is because the skill level on HW is a lot better than your average live player or on yahoo (which is the only other website I've played on.) Good players have a tendency to make your cards look worse... and they tend to make a lot more loners. When ...

Re: Random Deal Generator

All the talk doesn't change anything. If you want to learn how to catch a counterfeit dollar, you spend time with the real thing. That way when a phony comes across your desk, you instantly realize it's a phony. I play WAY more real euchre than I do Hardwood. I only come here to pass time during lun...

Re: Random Deal Generator

Thought I'd post the latest since I'm so freakin' pissed at this stupid game. Finally clawed my way up to 1584. Highest Hardwood ever let me get. Mind you it took WEEKS to get that high. I did not get there on a run. So this is how my last 17 games went. (Yes I keep track because the random deal gen...

Re: Random Deal Generator

First of all, nobody is asking the to change something every day. We see the same comments over and over which only means they're changing NOTHING. Secondly, HW euchre is NOTHING like real life. I have done numerous analysis and it is vastly different statistically. To say it's not different is just...
