# Thread: How would you test this?

1. ## How would you test this?

I have a project at work to test a game based on seven card stud poker. The user of the system watches an automated game being played and can bet on which 'player' they think will be the winner.

The game begins with each automated 'player' being dealt two cards face up. In the center of the table there are five cards face down.

The user can bet on which had they think will win.

Each center card is turned over in turn with the user being able to bet on which 'player' they think will win.

Once all five center cards have been turned, the 'player' with the best five-card poker hand out of their seven cards is the winner.

This ais all fairly simple to test. The problem is that as each center card is turned this system must prevent bets being placed on hands that cannot win.

Any ideas on how to test this?

All ideas welcome.

Cheers,
Mark

I'm drooling at the thought of your job. Testing and poker...2 of my favorite things.

Anyway, if I understand correctly, at the time of the initial deal, the system already knows which is the winning hand, right? In that case, the user should only be able to bet on that hand.

Or, does the system play "blind" along with the user and places odds on each hand? For instance 4 hands are dealt showing KdQd, AcAs, 2h9s, 7h8h. Without checking, I'd guess that the game would rank the hands in order 2,1,4,3. At this point can the user bet on any hand? If the first turn card is an Ad, does that eliminate hands 3 and 4? I guess I don't know enough about the game.

In order to give a more qualified answer, I'd need to beta test it. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

This sounds like a question for the Functional Testing forum.

I'll re-post to the Functional Testing forum with some more details.
