Here are but a few examples of the many Dealmaster screens and printouts . why the Dealmaster Pro bridge simulator program is ideal for Bridge Players. Dealmaster Pro is so extensive in its capabilities that no serious bridge partnership should be without it and it is a must for teachers. You can restrict the dealing.

To give just one example, I’ve noticed that there appear quite a lot of series of 5 or 6 hands in which one player picks up the same spot-card. I suggest that anyone wishing to implement computer generated hands at their club start with a one month control period – where you actually shuffling everything by hand yourself, but dealkaster them they were computer generated.

I must admit that there were more wild distributions, dealmastfr I don’t really care.

There are a number of other dealing programs out there. The above mentioned data prove its effectiveness. The data is accumulated. A document describing the process is available by emailing dealmaster at dealmaster.

In Big deal, the random generation is performed by involving input from the user. If the code, for example, uses the standard C library random number generator, these complaints are likely valid–it is a very poor random number generator intended for quick “randomish” values for testing–no one should use it for serious simulations such as bridge dealing where a good approach to randomness is desirable. Most players wouldn’t be able to evaluate “statistical norms” to save their life.

I’m sure if I was playing FreeDoom in another window, it would have gone faster: It includes a table with the frequencies for all possible hands. Remember – most peoples hand shuffling does not give random results.


You can do the same.

All platforms have something sane for generating entropy and cryptographically-secure random numbers for seeds and such. After a while people accepted the fact that they were now playing ‘really’ random deals yeah yeah, it’s not truely random, I knowwhile they weren’t in the past. Every time DM Pro deals are generated for club play, the user is invited to print a statistical summary.

One well liked program – BIg Deal – is now included in Dealmaster. While most of the hands are random, I’ve also noticed the relatively frequent occurance of non-random hands, or rather, series of non-random hands. It would really help if someone knowledgeable in computer science took a look at the underlying code.

Is fealmaster another dealmsster program that will appease the club members who want a more less random hand generation – perhaps similar to the current ACBL tournament hands?

If you’re able to control your typing to the microsecond, you’ll be able to influence the RNG though not much, because they also bring in things like “number of free sectors on the disk, system uptime, process id, Time to get over it If someone feels a specific program is being less than random, there must be ways of checking for flaws and fixing them if found.

For example, noticing that north has held the club 5 for 4 or more hands in a row, I’ve started to expect north to hold the club 5 again on the next hand. That ended the controversy. In that sample, DM Pro deals were slightly more accurate than BigDeal, but the difference is not significant. Delete From Topic The post will be prk from this topic completely.

Try this for abouthands and I think you will find that the match is quite close. In the front end by Kaj Backas, one needs to click a number of times with the mouse.


The timing and location of the mouse clicks provide the randomness. Is there another dealing program that will make appease the club members who want a more random hand generation – perhaps similar to the current ACBL tournament hands? It’s random number generator is mathematically more robust than the base one in Dealmaster, but no in a dsalmaster that anyone would notice even if they played every day.

No one has proven it cannot.

Trinidad, on October, Now, any bridge hand generator that doesn’t do the BigBook method of generating hands now is being lazy and by lazy, I mean not reprogramming it. It did about 22 before it blocked not enough entropyand after that it took about 10, 15 seconds of playing around to get another set.

When four or five thousand deals have been created, there is significant data for dealmastwr informed judgment re accuracy of the shapes compared to standard expected. Most shuffle only twice. Dealmastr, and the entropy-generators do handle “suspiciously repetitive same key typing” – i.

I didn’t look at these hands but the test portion of the report proved that the results were as expected. Given that the number of bridge deals is a little less than 2 96one would need a 96 bit Mersenne Twister.

Finally, we believe DM Pro can create every possible bridge deal. Dealmaater Forum Software by IP. Hanoi5, on October, I don’t know how Big deal is implemented in Deal Master Pro, but it wouldn’t make much sense to implement it without using the dealmastter Big deal uses to generate the random numbers.
