nt side

In Chapter 17 of Larry's book he talk about DONT again NT and how it is base on the Law.  I simulated about 203 million hands and obtained almost 10 million hands (4.893%) that has a 1NT 15-17 HCP opening (without 5 card major). The following is the distribution of the number of trumps on both side:-

  DONT side 7(DONT) 8(DONT) 9(DONT) 10(DONT) 11(DONT)
1NT side total 19.85% 50.17% 24.39% 5.13% 0.42%
7(NT) 19.78% 13.44% 6.29%      
8(NT) 48.98% 6.41% 30.34% 10.89% 1.30% 0.04%
9(NT) 24.37%   11.71% 9.94% 2.50% 0.22%
10(NT) 5.99%   1.73% 3.05% 1.08% 0.13%
