1st day

throws: 800

intersections: 490

pi approximation: 3,265...

most consecutive intersections: 9 (3 times)

most consecutive missed throws: 7

10 throws were made by prof. Volkmann, who got 7 intersections

2nd day

throws: 800

intersections: 525

pi approximation: 3,047...

most consecutive intersections: 15

most consecutive missed throws: 10

Altogether

throws: 1600

intersections: 1015

pi approximation: 3,152...

most consecutive intersections: 15

most consecutive missed throws: 10

Remark: The best possible approximation of pi one could get in 1600

throws is 3,1403... and it corresponds to 1019 intersections.

This means that the precision of our approximation is really good and

that neither Buffon nor the probability theory are lying ;)
