I haven't seen any calculations on the confidence interval on fifteen standard deviations, but as a reasonably intelligent layman, I estimate/guess it is something in the order of 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

I could understand why, when we didn't have any hole cards, you were trying to calculate the unlikelihood of these events.

Now that you can point people to hole cards, why are you continuing to post bad math?

Anyone have any idea how early account 363 would've been made? Lots of people are making it sound like it would've been made before the site went public. Is it reasonable for there to be that many accounts made that early?

Yes, 363 was almost certainly made before user registration was public.

This is a little off-topic, but since we're talking about the KGC, thought I'd post this trip-report that appears on the Casinomeister forum about a field trip that the author took to the actual server farm in Kahnawake during Global Interactive Gaming Summit & Expo 2007. The most revealing peek inside the operations I've read so far:
(link: http://www.casinomeister.com/newslet...pecial_ed.html )

"No TeePees here...

I was really looking forward to the final day of the GIGSE. I didn't have a chance to make any of the presentations, but I did have a chance to meet with David Montour, one of the Commissioners of the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. I made it clear that several years ago, Kahnawake licensing had a pretty good reputation. Most of their casinos operated effectively and fairly. It's a bit different now; there are a number of rogue operations that continue to generate complaints making the KGC look like a rubber stamp. No one wants this, especially the Kahnawakes and the good operators that pay for their services. Mr. Montour admitted that they've been slow in recent months answering complaints, but they are determined to take care of all submitted player issues. I'll be collecting the ones that I have that have hit a dead end; these will be forwarded. I hope that better communication will get the KGC back on its feet and renew the respect that they deserve.

From there, I met Micki at the Trident Lounge offices, and we drove out to Kahnawake to check out Mohawk Internet Technologies This is where the servers are located for all of the casinos that are licensed by Kahnawake.

The building was non-descript. And no, there weren't any Teepees in sight - and no one was wearing moccasins or sporting Mohawks. From the outside, perhaps it looked like a warehouse that stores office furniture or running shoes, but entering the place, it was mighty impressive. The security is intense, and the rooms that store the servers are state-of-the-art. It was assuring that there are a number of backup safety features that guarantee 24/7 operation. They even have three massive 500kw generators on standby if there ever is a power outage. It was a really cool tour."

its really seeming like what I thought it always was, a greedy programmer with inside access

So, apparently, I don't know enough about this stuff and JackBileDuct knows a lot more than me.

But it appears that it's somehow assigned to AP by the KGC. So it has to have been an inside job, 100%.

broke programmer says to friend, hey I can help you win this tourney by giving you hole card info for 1/2 the winnings. If they get caught.. really hard to prosecute.. AP will deny everything since they can't have cheating scandals and lose their business.

Just wanted to drop in as one of the players that had just over 18k cheated from me and say thanks to everyone that's helping with this. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

363 was most likely created during one of the first few stages of alpha development, this means this account could have been created and left dormant in the system early on hidden amongst a huge pile of dummy accounts and dummy data used to initially test the most basic function of AP's system

obviously they could have wiped the userDB when it went beta ect. but they've already shown themselves to be terrible programmers so i'd assume that never happened.
