    So, now all four Computerprograms are in the TOP Ten. We human have to fight hard, to get back this area… :-))

    Actually, it's 4 out of the 5 computer programs. There is also bigfraggle_c with rating aroung 1630.

    I am trying to fight hard! I finally hit the top ten with a 3-0 win versus Luiser(my rating is currently 1730). I have only played one of the “c” players, I beat Hanifred awhile ago, 3-1. I have only completed 97 games. I think I have had some lucky dice rolls thus far, I am statistically due to get my bad rolls soon! but in the final analysis, computers also have to face the luck of the die!

    “statistically due”

    Dice have no memory, so “statistically due” does not exist in this context.

    What you can say is that in a higher number of new games against stronger players one will be less likely to win a majority of games thanks to “lucky dice rolls”.

    Let me give an example where is does exist:

    Fill a bag with 6 red and 6 blue stones and pick stones from the bag one at a time at random. Do not put them in again.

    Say the first stone is red. Now you are already “statistically due”, i.e. the chance has become higher, to pick a blue stone. After you have got 6 stones of one colour, you are certain to pick the other colour. The bag remembers the stones not picked.
