I have a Github account. My username is mogofalo. I have attached an organizational account to my Github account. The name of my organizational account is Finnish27GamesLLC.

I added a set of new repositories to the organizational account. The set consists of a repository entitled Finnis27GamesLLC/Finnish27-1roidocs, a repository entitled Finnish27GamesLLC/Finnish27-1simdocs, and a repository entitled Finnish27GamesLCC/Finnish27-5cphdocs.

Inside of these repositories, I have added a set of new documents. The set of text documents consists of a set of text documents and a set of HTML documents. These documents were saved by a set of software applications. The set of software applications consists of the 1roi.BAS software application, the 1sim.BAS software application, and the 5cph.BAS software application. These software applications enable the user to analyze and simulate the play of a set of comparing card games belonging to the poker-like subfamily of the Finnish 27 ™ family of table card games.

The distinguishing feature of the poker-like subfamily is the following rule. If the player acquires a hand of five cards with a numerical sum value of 27 or less, then the player must stand. The hand is a qualifying-five-card-poker hand. If the player and the dealer each acquire a qualifying-five-card-poker hand, then the hands are compared to a predetermined hierarchy of five-card-poker hands. The hand with the highest rank wins the game, and ties are a push. If neither the player nor the dealer acquires a qualifying-five-card-poker hand, then the outcome of the game is determined by comparing hand totals to the target numerical sum of 27. Qualifying-five-card-poker hands generally have a higher value than hands of less than five cards. However, in some games, any hand with a numerical sum value of 27 has a higher value than a qualifying-five-card-poker hand. In other games, only player hands with a numerical sum value of 27 have a higher value than a qualifying-five-card-poker hand. Accordingly, the rules vary from game to game.

The 1roi.BAS software application enables the user to specify a set of game rules for a comparing-card game belonging to the poker-like subfamily of the Finnish 27 ™ family of table card games. Given the user-defined set of game rules the 1roi.BAS software application performs a complete combinatorial analysis of the game. The complete combinatorial analysis of the game enables the 1roi.BAS software application to find the basic strategy. The basic strategy is the strategy for the play of the player’s hand that loses the least amount of money in the long run with strictly average luck. The basic strategy enables the 1roi.BAS software application to calculate the expected value of the game. The expected value of the game is given as a percentage value. The percentage value represents the percentage of the game wagers that the player can expect lose in the long run with strictly average luck. The house edge is equal to the product of the expected value of the game multiplied by negative one. So the player’s loss is the house’s gain.

The 1roi.BAS software application saves a set of data files. The set of data files consists of a file containing data about the user-defined set of game rules, and a file containing data about the corresponding basic strategy. The 1sim.BAS software application is a high-speed game simulator. The game simulator enables the user to load into program memory the above-described data files. The game simulator enables the user to specify a card counting strategy, and a betting strategy for a computer controlled player. The user-defined set of game rules enables the game simulator to program a computer-controlled dealer to deal the game. The playing, card counting, and betting strategies enable the game simulator to program a computer-controlled player to play the game.  The game simulator enables the user to specify the number of sessions played and the number of rounds of play in each session. Accordingly, the 1sim.BAS software application enables the user to perform high-speed game simulations of comparing-card games belonging to the poker-like subfamily of the Finnish 27 ™ family of table-card games. The results of these game simulations enable the user to corroborate the values for the expected value of the game calculated by the 1roi.BAS software application. Additionally, the results of these game simulation enable the user to gain a better understanding of the vulnerability of these comparing-card games to advantage players. Advantage players seek to gain a theoretical advantage over the house by employing card counting and betting strategies.

The 5cph.BAS software application enables the user to specify a set of rules for the wild card value of Jokers (Bug rule or fully wild rule) and the rank of each of nine categories of five-card-poker hands (high card, pair, two pair, three or a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, and five of a kind). Given this data the 5cph.BAS software application generates a database. The database consists of data about five-card-poker hands. The data includes the numerical value of each of the cards in the hand, the type of hand (soft or hard), the numerical value of the hand, the rank of the five-card-poker hand if the player does not have five cards of the same suit, and the rank of the five-card-poker hand if the player does have five cards of the same suit. The 1roi.BAS software application enables the user to load this data into program memory. This data enables the 1roi.BAS software applications skip the step of finding this data itself. Thereby, this data enables the 1roi.BAS software application to perform its functions at a much faster rate of speed. The 1sim.BAS software application also enables the user to load the set of rules for the wild card value of Jokers, and the rank of each of nine categories of five-card-poker hands.  This data enables the user to skip the step of reloading this data manually when using the 1sim.BAS software application.

The 5cph.BAS software application, the 1roi.BAS software application, and the 1sim.BAS software applications save text files. Each of the software applications saves a text file with the suffix “i.txt”. These text files make a record of the user input. The 1roi.BAS software application saves a text file with the suffix “o.txt”. This text file makes a record of the basic strategy and exception rules. The 1roi.BAS software application also saves an HTML file with the suffix “h.html. This HTML file makes a record of the basic strategy and exception rules. The 1sim.BAS software application saves a text file with the suffix “o.txt”. This file makes a record of the game simulation displayed in the application window after the completion of each of a user-defined number of sessions with each session consisting of a user-defined number of rounds of play. The 1sim.BAS software application saves a text file with the suffix “d.txt”. This text makes a record of game simulation results after the completion of all of the user-defined number of sessions. The 1sim.BAS software application saves a text file with a suffix “p.txt”. This text file makes a record of data about the qualifying-five-card-poker hands that were made during the game simulation.  These are the text files that I have added to the corresponding repositories (5cphdocs, 1roidocs, and 1simdocs).
