Recently the problem of selecting the best one of several binomial populations has been studied from the point of view of different sampling rules. In this paper, we compare some sequential procedures with and without early elimination. The main breakdown is between those using the cyclic play the winner PWC sampling rule and those using the vector at a time VT sampling rule. The PWC rule orders the k given populations at random at the outset and uses this ordering in a cyclic manner. After each success, we sample from the same population after each failure, we switch to the next population in the ordering scheme. After the kth population, we complete the cycle by going back to the first population.
