I won an online tournament and will be competing in the championship event of this year's World Series of Poker. This is an account of the experience and a place to think about poker.

I've been working on a problem in Number Theory off and on for almost

ten years called "the Collatz Conjecture" aka "the 3X + 1 problem".

Let f(x) be a function defined on the positive integers such that:

f(x) = x/2 if x is even

f(x) = (3*x+1)/2 if x is odd

Then the conjecture is: iterates of f(x) will eventually reach 1 for any

initial value of x. Various cash prizes have been offered for the proof or disproof of this conjecture.
