It is VERY important NOT to write any public spoilers :slight_smile:
ALWAYS keep spoiler stuff hidden inside one of these

Good luck :slight_smile:
FYI one of the features of Advent of Code is that we all get given different inputs so our answers will be different.
The examples are all the same but each of us gets different inputs for us to solve

I'm working away on Part 1 slowly

Got to the stage of getting a score value against each hand


Just have to do the ranking bit now.......

Part 1 all done :slight_smile:

Part 2 doesn't look to bad at first glance but I've been caught out before thinking that way :slight_smile:

You put the link for day 8 in the post.

Sorted - thanks
