HOW TO VERIFY THE DEALS USING HANS van STAVEREN’S PROCEDURE
If you would like to check that there has been no interference with the dealing of the hands:
1. Download the “present key” before 19:30 on Friday evening 1st November 2019
2. Check the Euromillions lottery numbers (the “future key”) for Friday 1st November 2019
3. Download the “past key” which will be published after the event (in Bulletin 7 and here)
4. Run the program (download from http://www.xs4all.nl/~sater/SquareDeal.zip) using the 3-part key according to the instructions: the “present” and “past” files and the 5 numbers and 2 stars from the lottery results, comma separated (the program will prompt you).
5. Compare the hands generated this way with the hands actually played.
