I don't know if inspiring is the right word. Here's someone with incredible smarts and talent. However, he's really doing nothing creative to make a positive impact on society. I suppose if he were working on Wall St., the same could be said.

Because they already have his mug shot anyways?

True that he isn't using his talent for something else, but he is using it for what he likes to do. I think that is more of my goal, being able to do what I want to make a living. I'm not sure what that will be, but I hope I'll be able to do it.

It also inspired me to look for as many +EV situations as I can when I scope out the local store in the near future. Who knows what I'll find, not like any APs live nearby.....not like many people live nearby at all

Apparently he relies alot on seeing the hole card. Casinos that hand hold and deal cards deserve to lose huge amount of money. They have no one else to blame.

According to WIRED he didn't play his first HC until late '97, and then the 1st printing of BC was three years later. That would mean that he started compiling for publication his book of secrets within 18-mos of his first HC? Seems like he was in an awful hurry to spill the beans? Also, if the WIRED date doesn't jive with with other clues in the book, like the intro story?

What yesr did you play your first HC, CP? zg
