It is far more impressive when you count cards successfully without getting banned...

You're probably right, but suffice it to say that I would not go against him in poker and I'm thinking he could easily outperform me investing, but I could be wrong.

Look, I know the prevailing wisdom here is that advisors are a rip off. I've probably said as much myself. Why does everyone think that all advisors are bad? As mentioned, I spoke with two highly compensated coworkers and they both love the guy. I tend to take the advice of people I know personally over anonymous internet posters, but I want to go into this with my eyes wide open.
