Sharpe ratio, SCORE, ROI

I think your ROI is just Sharpe ratio squared times .5*log(10) =
SCORE*.115 or something. Are you sure it is 10% risk of ruin, not 1%? This scaling factor is confusing.

It looks like you make around 20% more by going from Intermediate (or so) to Expert. This is because you make roughly 10% more per unit and you bet 10% higher. This isn't completely out-of-line, but you should report Sharpe ratios and SCORES and reconcile with similar (but more modest) results from Blackjack Attack. I think if you play a worse game then your proportional improvement appears more dramatic because you weren't making much to start.
