The one thing someone can say to drive me nuts, when they find out I play poker, is “So you like to gamble?”   It’s less that “I like to gamble” and more “I love finding situations with positive expected value (EV)”.   And this is one heck of a plus EV situation.   So a friend of mine, Megan Squires, recently released a book that she has written called Traced: Part One of The Outlier Chronicles.  I’m only a couple of chapters into it and, so far, it’s kind of a cross between 1984 and Twilight, except without the demeaning attitude towards women that Stephanie Meyers infuses into her writing.  And lame vampires. No lame, sparkly vampires in Traced either.   I should take this opportunity to let everyone know there’s a bit of exaggeration in my “picture review”. I have no idea if it’s true. I assume it to be true, but can’t prove it since I didn’t read the entire Twilight Saga. ...

The Problem with The Math of Holdem

Game Over People

I didn’t have much luck last time Collin ran a competition.  It was back in the Stox days and the person that could best describe what was going on in the SNGWiz chart below won a video analysis from the man himself.     I, of course, knew exactly what the situation was and posted my response.   “Thank you for finding the pictures of the first time someone tried to teach me to snowboard.”     After a few other people attempted to answer Collin posted:  “Haha I’m tempted to end the contest today and give it to the snowboarding guy.”   He wasn’t tempted enough.       But this time I have done it.  I’ve got this one in the bag.   I did make a slight change to the title, but only because I feel that this helps open up the book to a demographic that wouldn’t normally be inclined to pick up a math book.   And, of course, once my submission is declared victorious, I will be adding the...
