They are independent events Do you agree the Line one deal is an independent event from Line two deal?

All the rows are independent deals, but once a different deck comes into play , that changes things, being offered a top card off a single deck is not the same as been offered a top card off many decks, many of the top cards could be the same card.

In simple terms the consequence action is loads of repeat cards in our hands. The card you get dealt, not being assigned by the shuffle, but by the deck that is assigned.

My comparison is of a live game and an internet game. Thank you for reminding me of the link.

It is an interesting notion, I am not making things up. It may be a possibility , in my mind more than a possibility.

You would think that the internet would be abuzz after the millions of hands already dealt. "John, how do you hold an Ace of spades when I have two of them in my hand?"

It was a several year ago I last had the information, I assume they have not changed it since , I have not heard of changes mentioned.
I was surprised and told them then it can't work that way and be consistent.

Hopefully stars gets back to me soon. They never kept it secret or anything like that.

They keep the decks separate but put them in a queuing system, the next table that needs a new deck gets one.

It uses multiple decks so of course there is a link.

A new deck each hand is assigned to the table, it is a choice of deck that defines what cards you get rather than the shuffle of one deck.

No not at all, because once the multiple decks come into play they become dependent to the deal.

Having any given deck define the hand you get is not the same as a shuffle defining your hand.

There is no link just because you say there is a link.

There is no link. There, I said it therefore it is true.

That's correct , there is absolutely nothing wrong with the randomness of the cards you get, it is totally random. The problem is repeat values and win/lose decks.

Perhaps the win /lose decks is better left out of this until you understand the repeat problem.

When stars confirms they use multiple decks, I think that confirms the link.

I feel it is very obvious .

Limited to my understanding of your new math theorems, we ain't goin' nowhere.

You struggle in the real world as well?

YOU can not make the leap that using multiple decks is a problem without making assumptions that are unprovable. Let's hear what Stars has to say.

You play on Stars do you?

Yes I play on stars. I have found the original conversation and reply from stars . Still waiting to confirm they use the same system which I believe they do.

Quote:
 Where a deck of cards is shuffled has absolutely no bearing as to whether it is shuffled randomly or not. As we have explained to your repeatedly, the cards are shuffled randomly. They *are* dealt to your table alone, in order, without being altered in any way. As I write this, there are more than 25,000 tables in action, and each of them requires a new, shuffled deck of cards foe every hand it deals. Each table requires a deck more than once per minute, on average. It makes no sense to have the cards shuffled at each table. That would require tens of thousands of individual shuffle servers, which is just silly.

 Instead, there are servers that do nothing but shuffle decks of cards. They have no idea how those cards will be used, they just shuffle decks and line them up. When your table needs a deck, it pings the server, and the next deck in line is delivered to that table. The cards are then dealt in order. There is no such thing as a "cool deck"; every deck is shuffled randomly, so it is a fair deck. It cannot *possibly* favor any particular player. NOTHING is ever done to alter the decks -- they are simply dealt in order, fairly.

They just shuffle the decks and line them up, creating a bi-probability array.

Shuffling one deck multiple times and shuffling multiple decks and using them sequentially changes nothing in terms of randomness. Those 5 starting cards were generated randomly, just like they would be if the same deck was used and then shuffled again, 5 times.

Nothing to do with randomness it is about the repeat values over time.

For example if I had ten decks of cards pre-shuffled and offered you the top card of any deck, some of them top cards might be the same value.

Because you are having the top card, none of the other cards matter , your choice becomes ? / 10

Once the deck choice is offered, all the top cards become dependent.
