What are some mathematical or scientific principles of poker?

I'm trying to get a list of things (equations, theories, etc) we know about poker or gambling in general in terms of scientific or mathematic principles. It can't just be game theory. it's got to be specific aspects of it. And I mean ANY aspects of it. Hot hands. Beginner's luck. Inside straights.

What specific professions should I be engaging, and where can I find them? More information below the fold. [more inside]
