i've created a monster

or at least a kid headed for gamblers anonymous in 4 years at the age of 10.

he likes to play texas hold'em. he plays on my wife's blackberry. i let him play my on-line games when i have to go away from the computer for something.

twice, he's played a 10-person tournament from the very first hand..........and won.




i kindly let the other players know who they were up against when it got down to the final 3. they didn't believe me. or, at least, they didn't want to.

Many times, rank amatuers can beat pros because their moves are so unconventional. Professional players can sense what another pro will do in a certain situation. When a loose cannon sits down at the table and starts doing things other than what the odds say you should do, the dynamics change.

And then you have the issue of no chance of reading the opponents in online games. So online games really can just be about luck.
