# greedy history pattern match
# greedy - use highest available order and most recent
# order 6 - should be slightly faster than order 7 but just as good
# use my hands, op hands, as well as both to predict next hands
# update only the orders that are >= the order last used to make the prediction
# - something from PPM compression
# choose the strategy with the best score
# choose the meta strategy using an additional history matching corrector
# which matches using past meta choices and the corresponding payoffs
# even though I use a history matcher, it seems order 1 is the best
# a little bit of decay goes a long way
# this bot is mostly deterministic
# this beats bayes14 and bayes15 approximately 70% - 80% of the time, but it's
# still not as effective and ties a lot more with other bots
