I understand your calculation, but what is wrong with mine? I took the
binominal distribution and my numbers seem to be correct, aren't they?
sqrt(519*481/1000) = sqrt(249,639) = 15.799
actual result(+38)/sigma(15.799) = 2.4 (oops, in my first calculation I
took +36, damn).
2.4 ---> 99.18% confidence that the same set of 1000 25p matches will
produce a win for gnubg. Ok, I miscalculated it, but this is even more
in favour of gnubg.
