Poker Dice while loop
(May-28-2017, 08:03 PM)ichabod801 Wrote: This is your error:
 if fa == 'yes' or 'y': 
Python reads it like this:
 if (fa == 'yes') or ('y'): 
Since any non-empty string evaluates as True, the second part is True, and the whole expression is always True. You want:
 if fa == 'yes' or fa == 'y': 
 if fa in ('yes', 'y'): 
I would also use break instead of quit, and more descriptive variable names (a and fa are confusing). Also, if you put the three dice into a list, and then sort that list, then the comparisons are much easier (especially for straights).
Thank You!
