 Post subject: CFRM in Java: floats instead of doubles

I'm currently using a Java-based CFRM implementation which stores the regrets and cummulative strategies in matrices of doubles. For memory saving purposes I want to switch to floats. I'm aware of the fact that doubles are much more precise, but I'd guess that the negative effects of floats (e.g. adding a tiny number to a huge number may not change the result at all) might not be relevant at all. Does anyone use a float-based algorithm instead of a double-based on or has negative experiences with it?

Thanks spears. I guess I have to stick with the doubles and decrease my abstraction size then ;)
