Mike Caro has a theory regarding alien invasion, and he's spent significant time thinking about it. If tiny green men ever come to Earth and wish to determine the fate of the planet based on the results of a poker game, Caro feels he should represent humankind.

Welcome to the world of Caro, the "Mad Genius of Poker." A man who once threatened a handful of opponents to play poker to the death, until one man threw a knife on the table and told him to "deal it up" and forced him to back down.

"I'm not sure if everybody thinks I'm normal, but I may be on the threshold of being normal," Caro said.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

While Caro tends to stray from conventionality, he's used his eclectic personality to make a niche for himself as one of the premier poker minds.

One of the top draw poker players in the world, Caro started writing in 1978 when Doyle Brunson asked him to contribute to his new book "Super System." Caro penned a chapter on draw poker and contributed his statistical research to create the mathematical tables in the book, which went on to alter poker history.
