I don't know about you but it took me until I was 14 before I could hold a hand of cards right.  I was 16 before I could shuffle them without just tossing them all over the room.  I can't imagine the number of hours this guy has spent playing with cards to get himself to this point.  It's a shame that all that time still won't get him into college.  But it might get him some beer money when he's there!
