Hi there, i'm in the second year of my maths degree and need to write an essay. i was thinking of doing it on 'The theory of gaming and gambling', with some game theory, stats and probability involved in blackjack, poker, roulette, sports bets etc.

i was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for topics i could do under that title that are of an advanced level? maybe mathematics behind chess computers, stuff like that..
