There is a concerning trend at (least for me) where people enter the Finals not with just their best algo,
but with a SET of 6 … and if we go on like this the “the best algo” will be determined by luck, statistic and bluffs.
I feel personally responsible for this trend as this was made publicly available with the cross_check tool and its variations.
The inspiration for the tool was indeed to test the performance of different strategies,
but in the algo creation phase and the incorporate the statistically better variations in your final algo.
I personally feel we should limit the participation in the Finals to just one algo per player.
I even thing if switching (even for good reasons) is forbidden, it have better results for all:
Submitting a last minute quick change with out testing it publicly for at least a day … is not wise and not healthy!
What do you think ?
- All 6 algoes should be eligible for the Finals
- Limited number of algos should be eligible for the finals (2-3)
- Just one algo, with option to switch if good reason is provided in short timeframe ( 24h)
- One Algo and no compromises
