I'm trying to understand the best share and how it relates to luck. What qualifies as a good best share?
A "best share" is nothing more than the largest share your miners have contributed. It doesn't have any actual correlation to anything (other than "bragging rights"). A "good" best share is relative to hashrate and time. At the current difficulty, a truly good best share is one that's greater than 1,196,792,694,098.  Wink
It's as CG says here, it is only for bragging rights, but if you wish to know what a good best share is then the following explanation will help you understand better.

After 100 shares, on average your best share should be 100.
After 1,000,000 shares, on average your best share should be 1,000,000.
After 1,200,000,000,000 shares, on average your best share should be that too, meaning you should have found one block with it. That's why on average it takes current diff number of shares to find one block.

If your best share is less than the total number of shares you've contributed, then your luck is a little low, and vice versa. It has absolutely zero bearing on your chance of finding an ultra lucky best share in the very next share, but it's interesting to watch nonetheless.

So by the figures here that share would be classed as good luck?
due to the lower amount of shares submitted through a higher best share = better luck?

"shares": 81025757,
   "bestshare": 14310183700.74831,

By your explanation, I'm on par with with an 11M best share and about 4M total? I just started all of this a couple of days ago and was concerned if it was even worth it with my avalon2. I tried pool mining and found out really quick that was pointless. Then i found this place. I know its still a long shot, but I'm only $50 deep in equipment.

I only have 4 S1s and i replaced them with S3s a while back... not convinced it was the best move if i'm honest lol... the S1s i'm sure were cheaper to run per Ghash! all running off a 1200w PSU

How'd the S3 die?

Not 100% sure heavy plastic burning smell and some smoke from the inside plugs on top are fine no burning so I guess its been something on the board that's burned out need to pull it open and have a look see.

I have x6 running from a total of 2500W
X1 Corsair RM1000x
x1 Corsair RM850
x1 XFX 650

Sounds like fun - my 4 S3s are all running from one 1200w (AX1200) soon to replace all the cables with custom made ones - found the genuine ones to be running too thin cables (been running that same PSU pretty much 24/7 for atleast 4 or 5 years!) so thought it deserved a treat Wink 16awg wires.

Bestshare resets for everyone any time a block is found by anyone in this pool. Best ever doesn't.

Yeah, but when those big shares appear its almost like a block.
You were kind of lucky, but not enough.

Every share that is more then 100bill, is like that.
Well for me, for sure.

Ive been solo mining for the past 2 years, from time to time.
And I've only had a share more than 100bill, 5-6 times.

Earlier today the DIFF on the /pool status page was over 103 its now back at 95.8? Did something happen?
Bitcoin difficulty rose.

Dammmmm..     21.39% The Diff has been rising at a crazy rate since 4th June. 
Look at the jumps before jumps in the prior 5 months to this in the 2nd table.

From July to Now
Oct 26 2017    1,452,839,779,146    21.39%    10,399,832,230 GH/s
Oct 15 2017    1,196,792,694,099    6.49%    8,566,975,802 GH/s
Oct 02 2017    1,123,863,285,133    1.85%    8,044,926,758 GH/s
Sep 18 2017    1,103,400,932,964    19.58%    7,898,451,536 GH/s
Sep 06 2017    922,724,699,726    3.89%    6,605,120,681 GH/s
Aug 24 2017    888,171,856,257    -3.80%    6,357,781,793 GH/s
Aug 09 2017    923,233,068,449    7.32%    6,608,759,726 GH/s
Jul 27 2017    860,221,984,436    6.92%    6,157,708,817 GH/s
Jul 14 2017    804,525,194,568    13.53%    5,759,015,666 GH/s
Jul 02 2017    708,659,466,230    -0.43%    5,072,782,052 GH/s
Jun 17 2017    711,697,198,174    4.85%    5,094,526,985 GH/s
Jun 04 2017    678,760,110,083    13.90%    4,858,754,124 GH/s

We only see one time where we have double-figure jump in this period was back in January at 16.54% now look at the jumps above if the difficulty is adjusting up for the additional hash rate why is it now jumping at higher s% than previous even though the hash rate change is still equivalent and yet we are seeing hash rate jump on and off bitcoin on almost a switch.

Previous data
May 23 2017    595,921,917,085    6.42%    4,265,775,241 GH/s
May 10 2017    559,970,892,891    7.28%    4,008,427,786 GH/s
Apr 27 2017    521,974,519,554    0.22%    3,736,439,151 GH/s
Apr 13 2017    520,808,749,422    4.24%    3,728,094,244 GH/s
Mar 30 2017    499,635,929,817    5.03%    3,576,533,297 GH/s
Mar 17 2017    475,705,205,062    3.24%    3,405,230,497 GH/s
Mar 03 2017    460,769,358,091    4.54%    3,298,315,540 GH/s
Feb 18 2017    440,779,902,287    4.41%    3,155,225,442 GH/s
Feb 04 2017    422,170,566,884    7.43%    3,022,014,630 GH/s
Jan 22 2017    392,963,262,344    16.64%    2,812,940,600 GH/s
Jan 10 2017    336,899,932,796    6.05%    2,411,623,656 GH/s

Could the Diff be manipulated in some way to make it spike like this if you look at some charts of the Diff we are moving up at such a rate now it's incredible to look at.

I think it has more to do with the exponential growth of high-end ASICs and a $998.99 BTC vs a $6,051BTC. Everyone wants some "magic internet money".

If you have to ask "why?", you wouldn`t understand my answer.
Always be on the look out, because you never know when you'll be stalked by hit-men that eat nothing but cream cheese....
