I'm broadly interested in very applied math. I try to apply ideas from mathematics, statistics, machine learning, formal systems and computer science to solve real-world problems. Mostly in applied finance/quantitative trading, but in other areas if the mood takes me.


The following is for my own use, but feel free to borrow it -

Hi. It looks like you are new here. We are generally very willing to help, but we like users to show the work that they've done towards solving the problem on their own first. If you can edit your question to show the code you've written so far, and where you are stuck, then you will get a much better response.

comment Should I have went all-in with KK on this flop?
I assume that the OP discounted AA because the villain hesitated for so long pre-flop (assuming he's not faking a tell). AA would normally be an insta-call or even a push.

comment Mathematical Derivation of the Chen Formula
I'd be interested to know why this was downvoted - I think that it explicitly answers the part of the question "I am looking for a derivation of this formula, or if this is not possible, some insight into its derivation." Downvotes without a comment to explain them are not helpful if you want the site to grow.
