Feel free to check the "new" random number generation and thank you for your suggestion.

sp0ck,

I'm glad we agree that taking steps in this direction is most logical.

Thank you for being open to suggestions and for the follow-through. I really appreciate it.

speaking about the most Logical direction: so far, all we've heard are your "feelings" concerning bad beats.

Have you mined your logs to substantiate that something is "wrong?"
Note: you'll Need a whole lot of logs ...

"cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail" would be the quick way of finding out if something was "wrong," which you apparently missed amongst all my "feelings" concerning bad beats.

But thanks anyway for your 2¢!

You started this thread with "I ask because in all-in situations when I'm a clear favorite, it seems that about 9 out of 10 times I get beat."

I don't see a Problem in checking the server-side randomizer. But even should that be sub-optimal in any way -- do you really think the result would be lots of bad beats per se -- or lots of bad beats against YOU personally?
