The Mathematical Theory Of Gambling Games

Despite all the obvious popularity of games of dice among the majority of social strata of various nations during several millennia and up to the XVth century, it is interesting to note the absence of any evidence of the idea of statistical correlations and probability theory. The French humanist of the XIIIth century Richard de Furnival was said to be the author of a poem in Latin, one of fragments of which contained the first of known calculations of the number of possible variants at the chuck-and luck (there are 216). Earlier in 960 Willbord the Pious invented a game, which represented 56 virtues. The player of this religious game was to improve in these virtues, according to the ways in which three dice can turn out in this game irrespective of the order (the number of such combinations of three dice is actually 56). However, neither Willbord, nor Furnival ever tried to define relative probabilities of separate combinations. It is considered that the Italian mathematician, physicist and astrologist Jerolamo Cardano was the first to conduct in 1526 the mathematical analysis of dice. He applied theoretical argumentation and his own extensive game practice for the creation of his own theory of probability. He counseled pupils how to make bets on the basis of this theory. Galileus renewed the research of dice at the end of the XVIth century. Pascal did the same in 1654. Both did it at the urgent request of hazardous players who were vexed by disappointment and big expenses at dice. Galileus’ calculations were exactly the same as those, which modern mathematics would apply. Thus, science about probabilities at last paved its way. The theory has received the huge development in the middle of the XVIIth century in manuscript of Christiaan Huygens’ «De Ratiociniis in Ludo Aleae» («Reflections Concerning Dice»). Thus the science about probabilities derives its historical origins from base problems of gambling games.

Before the Reformation epoch the majority of people believed that any event of any sort is predetermined by the God’s will or, if not by the God, by any other supernatural force or a definite being. Many people, maybe even the majority, still keep to this opinion up to our days. In those times such viewpoints were predominant everywhere.

And the mathematical theory entirely based on the opposite statement that some events can be casual (that is controlled by the pure case, uncontrollable, occurring without any specific purpose) had few chances to be published and approved. The mathematician M.G.Candell remarked that «the mankind needed, apparently, some centuries to get used to the idea about the world in which some events occur without the reason or are defined by the reason so remote that they could with sufficient accuracy be predicted with the help of causeless model». The idea of purely casual activity is the foundation of the concept of interrelation between accident and probability.

Equally probable events or consequences have equal odds to take place in every case. Every case is completely independent in games based on the net randomness, i.e. every game has the same probability of obtaining the certain result as all others. Probabilistic statements in practice applied to a long succession of events, but not to a separate event. «The law of the big numbers» is an expression of the fact that the accuracy of correlations being expressed in probability theory increases with growing of numbers of events, but the greater is the number of iterations, the less frequently the absolute number of results of the certain type deviates from expected one. One can precisely predict only correlations, but not separate events or exact amounts.

Golf Gambling Games: Wolf

Let’s not kid ourselves. Golf is a little more interesting when there is a little hard earned money on the line. One of the most popular golf gambling games to play is a game called “Wolf.” First, a rotation must be set before teeing off. Second, you must decide a comfortable amount to wager each hole. Off the first tee, the person who draws #1 is the “wolf.” On the second hole, #2 is “wolf” and on the third hole the #3 drawn player is the “wolf” and so on. In a foursome, each player will be the “wolf” four times, and two players will be the wolf five times on #17 and #18. Back to hole #1. The “wolf” will hit his tee shot first. The #2 player will hit his tee shot next. The “wolf” must now decide before the third player tees off whether he wants to be partner with the #2 player, and those two will play the hold against the other two players. If he doesn’t want to be #2’s partner, then he could decide to take #3 tee shot before #4 hits there shot, and the rotation goes on. If #4 hits there tee shot and the “wolf” doesn’t take him/her as partner, then the “wolf” plays the hole alone against the other three players. If this is the case, the “wolf” will either win three times the money or must pay out all three of his partners the same.

The round continues on until hole #17, when the two players who are most down in the money become “wolf” again, and they can either win some money back by playing the hold themselves, or they can partner up and try to win some money back with a partner.

The game does take some paying attention from the group. I have played a $5 wolf game before and lost $25 total. Keep in mind if you are playing a $10 wolf, then you can possibly lose $180 dollars or more with press bets. Bet only what you can afford to lose. Wolf is a very fun game to play with a foursome and can keep things very interesting during a round.
