Ratings: (0)|Views: 58|Likes:
Amicus curiae Robert C. Hannum, Ph.D., is a Professor of Risk Analysis & Gaming at the University of Denver. He has written extensively on the role of skill in gaming generally and poker in particular. See infra; Curriculum Vitae of Robert C. Hannum, Ph.D. (Addendum A). He has also offered expert testimony in several
court cases on the issue of whether poker is a game predominantly of skill or chance. See id. Dr. Hannum strongly believes that when judicial decisions rely on statistical analysis that analysis must be rooted in sound scientific principles. In Dr. Hannum’s view, the decision below was based on such principles. Dr. Hannum respectfully submits this brief to assist the Court in evaluating the empirical analysis on which the District Court relied, at least in part, in
determining that skill predominates over chance in poker.
