I just finished a session and I would like to be able to replay that session with me getting the same hands and my opponents getting the same hands that we originally got. I think that this would let me see the effect of different approaches. I am not sure if that is currently possible?
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
This is not something that is possible currently, but thanks for the suggestion.
Why would this be helpful? Once you know all the cards, there isn't any uncertainty. The only thing I can think of is that it would enable you to figure out more about the bots by replaying the hands and seeing how they react to different things you do. But I don't see how that would help you in a real game because it would just be figuring out how to beat specific computer opponents.
What were you thinking the training benefit would be once you know all the cards?
My thinking was the learning benefit would be to develop a better sense of what plays work better against a certain level of players (and why) and what adjustments need to be made against a higher class of players. What I was thinking about was playing a session at, for example, the Swiss alps and then see what adjustments would be required to play against KGB level players. However, I can see where even over a session of more than 200 hands, there might be some inadvertent memorization that would greatly diminish the learning potential.
I really appreciate your prompt response as well as your very polite and diplomatic way of asking me what the hell was I thinking.
lol. I actually was curious what you were planning to do with it. We have gotten this request several times before and I think it would be possible to do it. I'm just worried that it would lead to less learning because players would learn the bots instead of learning how to beat humans. You can do this a little bit with the Beat the Pro Challenges to see how it would work for you. I'd be curious if after doing it if you still think there was a benefit.
