..but we don't have the topic 'whiney loser who doesn't know his probabilities'..yet...
Chat - very short, and hard to get context without copying
wizard kibitzes: Hello diane, good luck!
You kibitz: Hi from spring in Oz, enjoy!
wizard says: all my games tonight ended when opponents got 3 doubles during bear off
wizard says: wonder why it's always 3 and not 1 or 2 or 4 or 5, etc.
You kibitz: my thoughts are:
You kibitz: 1 - I bet it isnt *always* 3, save matches, analyse matches - including the ones you won, and check...i bet your human gut feeling is wrong - at least over a statistically significant number of matches
You kibitz: 2 - dont let it get to a race where 3 doubles will win it
wizard says: I'm just wondering why so many doubles at the end of every game, whether I get them or opponent gets them.
wizard says: ok, not every game, but maybe 75%.
wizard says: hmmmm, that's the second time with the 44
then he resigns B...and invites me again.
Oddly, I wasn't really interested in playing another whine fest, so I didn't accept..
Message from RepBotNG: wizard has complained about you.
wizard says: I complained because you won't give me a match.
wizard says: bye
message wizard and I complained about you, gagged you, and posted about you for all fibsters to see, because you are a dice whining bore...
Here are the rolls...as many of them as we managed to get before he resigned rather than even try to play..
Apart from my slight predisposition to roll 44, anyone else feel this is a misrepresentative sequence of 31 rolls of two dice?
