Our first poker god stopped by.

This is a reply I received from Barry Greenstein.

Thanks for the nice write-up on your blog. I think logical thinking is more
important in the long run, but since Mimi had a good teacher (me), having a
good memory made the job easy for me. However, it was sometimes difficult
to get her to extrapolate correctly to situations that were similar to the
ones she had memorized.

If a player had very superior logical decision making abilities, say in the top .5% would that compensate for having only a slightly above average memory?

> Thank you for sharing your thoughts and wisdom in Ace.
