Professional and enthusiast currently working at Yelp. As a logician, I believe anything can be made possible, though not all roads lead to tractable solutions.

As an eclectic programmer, I'm not always the best person to answer your question. But, I do my best.

comment Why is real-money-betting necessary for poker to be fun?
When real money is on the table, the Kelly criterion and implied odds actually matter. I've found that you only start getting fiscally-correct betting when the returns cease to be trivial in terms of time (accrued fake chips) and money (accrued wealth). -- But then, I find Poker theory fascinating, so I've actively sought out answers to this question myself.
