My name is Conor Hoekstra. I live in Prince George, British Columbia. I attend grade 11at DP Todd Secondary School. My interests are mathematics, music (the trumpet), sports (especially soccer) and poker. I have a part time job and I am currently enrolled in seven courses (including Math 12). I plan to go onto to university, which one I am not sure of yet, and to enroll in Actuarial Mathematics. I then plan to be an actuary.

Project Poker
Division:International / None
Region:Central Interior British Columbia
City:Prince George, BC
School:D P Todd Secondary
Abstract:The purpose of my project was to determine a mathematical way in which you would win 75% of the hands you played and finish with an average of 2nd place when playing classic Texas Holdem poker starting out with nine people. In the end, I created the THA (Texas Holdem Algorithm) which met all these goals.
