Gambling Myths: What You Absolutely Need to Know

Recently, I was talking with an expert poker player, and he admitted he’d won big, lost big, and eventually came up with a pretty decent, self-made system for playing cards. Anyway, we got to discussing all this, and he told me he’d copyrighted his methods into an eBook, and began to explain the essence of how it worked, which I found fascinating.

He said, or rather I thought I heard him say that he had a new “gambling system hat works,” but what he actually said was that he had a new innovative gambling system “that” works. Nevertheless, it reminded me of a previous intellectual scientific dialogue I’d had months the prior about augmented reality glasses that the military uses and now a few police departments have them for their police officers, perhaps, you’d seen the new Google Augmented Reality Glasses.

Anyway, I asked Alan Samonte, the eBook author of “The Samonte System: Finally, a gambling system that works,” what sort of gambling system “hat” he had, I asked him if it was a full on Google style augmented reality system with all the batteries and computer system in the hat, with a micro video camera system in the frames of glasses, then gives you the information, and best way to play each hand, based on Monte Carlo mathematical formulas? What other math formulas are you using? Is your system easy enough for anyone to use without having attended MIT for instance?

Well, by then I was just having fun with him, because I misinterpreted or misheard what he’d said, but either way, it did get my mind in gear to think off-topic, of a new application for the latest invention for augmented glasses. Just think if the kids in the Movie “21” had a system like that when they went gambling in Las Vegas? By the way, I did meet the author of that screenplay, nice guy, and yes, a great movie.

Question is, could someone with such a device beat a Champion Texas Hold’em Player, if they were even allowed to use such a computer system? And if they could would it be a lopsided game just as IBM’s Super Computer “Watson” kicked butt over the world champion “Jeopardy” players on TV for all the world to see?

Who would win? Could someone like Alan Samonte with his newly devised system beat an AI augmented reality machine? Who knows, I’d like to see that match actually, it would be fun to watch – Man VS Man with Machine! Math and Science VS Finesse and Skill, all for the ultimate bragging rights and thrill, that would be cool indeed.

Interestingly enough, I am a math guy so you know, what can I say? But, I’m also a seasoned entrepreneur playing balls to the wall, no fear tactics, and love to blitz the competition Colonel Boyd apostle style. Meanwhile, I understand the world too, and I do a little technical trading in the markers, and also read the news and feel the pulse of the Marshall McLuhan media mirror of society.

It seems to me that both concepts are viable, and even in things like stock trading which in many regards is gambling, I never discount converging trends or black swan events, so, in a way, I understand both sides of each of the styles of play, but do not limit my mind to what works or ever stop asking “why?” Still, I wonder could a star poker player like Alan Samonte using his in-house system beat the Terminator in Vegas? “I’ll be back!” Please consider all this and think on it.
