The winning strategy of the last round, submitted by Vince Vatter, was
(0, 1, 2, 16, 21, 3, 2, 1, 32, 22), with an official record1 of 751 wins, 175 losses, and 5 ties. Naturally, the top-performing strategies look similar. This should not be surprising; winning strategies exploit common vulnerabilities among submissions.
I’ve downloaded the submitted strategies for the second round (I already have the first round’s strategies). Lets load them in and start analyzing them.
This is a great blog post, which looks at using evolutionary algorithms to evolve a winning strategy.
