I've created a new bridge point count system with aces worth 4.5 points, kings worth 3.0 points, queens worth 1.5 points, jacks worth 0.75 points, and tens worth 0.25. There are still 40 points in the deck, in line with the Work 4-3-2-1 system.
Apparently, a compilation of hands played in tournaments was run, and the following tables were created decades ago for the Work point count. Assuming "double dummy play, they showed, among other things, that a partnership with 25 hcps and a reasonably balanced hand was a (slight) favorite to make 3NT.
Supposed I had the computer recalculate points under the new system and sort the percentages of successful and failed contracts at each point level under double dummy play. Such an exercise might show higher ratios of success for 3NT and higher contracts for 25+ points than the original simulation, and higher rates of failure for 24- point contracts.*
Is this an appropriate test? Would the results described above demonstrate the advantages of the new point count system?
*The simulation could, of course, show the reverse, which I would take to mean that the new system was inferior.
