Sunday, I had a visitor stop by to go over some edits I had made in a paper he had written. To pass the time while he was reading, I began playing solitaire on my laptop.He looked over my shoulder and asked to look at my stats and was very impressed that I had a 24% average win. He indicated that, with the 3 draw, he thought it was impossible for anyone to average much better than 20% and that he had never gotten higher than 17%.
Now I am not claiming that my percentage is anything exceptional. Looking on-line it appears that others who have way too much time on their hands, claim to score 30% or better.
At first I was flattered when this guy asked if he could watch me do a game or two so he could learn my technique. Then, while he looked over my shoulder he started suggesting moves and telling me how I should play. He was quite insistant that I was "doing it all wrong".
Now let me get this straight... his winning record is 17% and mine is 24%... so why am I doing it all wrong? Reminds me of some of my former clients.
So what is your best solitair score? By the way, my FreeCell percentage is currently 100%
