The real deal challenge

By: markegg @ 10:16 (EST) / 120 / Comment ( 0 )

Here's your challenge.

Take a REAL deck of cards, give them the 'random shuffle' and then deal those cards, face up, hold em style, and see what you get.

Rinse n repeat this for maybe 100 to a couple of hundred hands, maybe set yourself a task to deal yourself 10 hands before you go to bed at night, get a sample of a hundred or so hands, and compare that 100 hands with what you might see here at pokerstars over 100 hands.

Comments, answers, updates all welcome below!

I have dealt a couple of hundred hands now, all face up and through to the river. Doesn't matter what mucks or bets, we are using this as a sample against the acknowledged pokerstars - random shuffle that allows them their license.

Now my findings have been a LOT different to what I see on the boards, yes, set over set occasionally, maybe a flush over flush. seldom, do I see a four on the board flush, seldom do I see AA cracked, yes AK does not play well post flop without help. I am not a crupee, but I know how to deal holdem.

See what you find
