    Does the French spelling have to be exact (vowel diacritics)? They all got it right, so tonight I will see. I had to pass a French reading exam a long time ago, but didn’t have to write any French.

    Took a look at the formula for Overall Daily Double Efficiency… May I recommend a small change. Instead of the Overall DD Efficiency being sum of individual DD Efficiencies, may I recommend the (sum of all outcomes) divided by the (sum of all potentials) Would you rather get a $1000 DD right and a $2000 DD right and a $10000 DD wrong or vice versa. 1st scenario yields 100 by your formula, 2nd a -100. I I’d rather get the two small DDs wrong but the bigger DD right !!
