I want to see if whatever Standard Deviations are built into the generator will result in a different percentage of > or = 8 cons. L's and W's versus 7.

I'm sorry, my brain isn't working too good right now, I've been battling a viral infection for the last 3 weeks. I ought to have just asked you for a count of strings, as in:

Number of W strings with a length of:
1 - 60
2 - 37
3 - 19
4 - 10
5 - 6
6 - 5
7 - 3
8 - 1
9 - 1

The idea I am pursuing first is the question of whether the distribution of strings is such that there is a mathematical advantage one way or the other (string continues or string not continue). In the above example the numbers are ficticious to illustrate the point. If they were the results, then it would be a simple matter to bet pass after a pass ended an L string. That bet would win 82 times and lose 60 times.
