It might help to realize that after 100 bets, your expected profit is over $40, so by the earliest time your opponent could possibly have won, the expected value of all of the bets is almost half of his original bankroll.

As I had satisfied myself that I, indeed, could take this money to the bank, my next thought was," Man, how long is this gonna take?"

My thoughts were as follows: I'm roughly 2:1 to hit, so every three hands I win $1. 300 hands to complete. 1 hand per minute = 5 hrs. [img]/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
