Designing the Poker library: Checking for Poker hands.
In (11) a method of encryption-decryption was presented, this method is based on using chaos-controlled poker shuffle operation, both variants of this method (A-I and A-II) have a poor throughput.
The binar shuffle algorithm uses the encoding of the data elements and parameterization to avoid any direct coupling to a random number generation algorithm, but still remain a linear O(N) shuffle.
In conclusion, I'd like to ask if someone verified what's the algorithm used to shuffle the cards in PokerTH, and if it's considered a valid algorithm. I remember trying to check the source code a long time ago, but it was so convoluted I couldn't find where the shuffling takes place, or anyway understand which algorithm it implemented. I'm asking about the exact algorithm used on the server.
I have nothing against these machines,but they need to be made 100% mechanical and eliminate any rng chip that flips the cards as it does,otherwise it's just video poker with real cards. If the future shuffle master 2 has card recontion software and can shuffle and reshuffle in numerical order what it wants and knows minus the players chimed in.
When you then use Collections.shuffle on this new list, it is shuffling a list with one item in it instead of shuffling the Integer objects in the array. Jyotiranjan in the approach 1: first snippet, there is a possibility that repetitive randomPosition can occur, but got the idea, thanks.
Something really has to be done about the shuffle. I mean come on, dueling full house's, 3 people with the same straight, straights are as common as 3 of Kind.
Ex. Student records in a university. Sort. Rearrange array of N items into ascending order. 3 Sorting problem item key Chen 3 A 991-878-4944 308 Blair Rohde 2 A 232-343-5555 343 Forbes Gazsi 4 B 766-093-9873 101 Brown Furia 1 A 766-093-9873 101 Brown Kanaga 3 B 898-122-9643 22 Brown Andrews 3 A 664-480-0023 097 Little Battle 4 C 874-088-1212 121 Whitman Andrews 3 A 664-480-0023 097 Little.
