When he was still quite young, he devised a crafty algorithm for the board game Monopoly. He noticed that few of his opponents purchased any of the cheap light blue properties (Connecticut, Vermont and Oriental) early in the game as they passed go with fresh cash . He also figured out that houses and hotels on these were relatively cheap, allowing him to get an early monopoly with a limited cash position. He nonchalantly bought all three properties, built them up and used his increasing rent cashflow to quite quickly bust up and buy up all the other monopolies bankrupting everyone else. His only mistake was telling me.
