's got the best beginner's luck on the planet -- because Monday night, the rapper sat down for his first ever live poker game ... and somehow QUINTUPLED his money, winning thousands of dollars.

Sources tell TMZ, TI was fresh off a concert in St. Louis and had some time to kill before his flight -- so he decided to try his luck at the poker table at the Lumiere Casino.

Thing is ... TI had never played a single game of poker in a casino EVER before that night -- and he still cleaned house.

Sources tell us, TI bought in for $500 -- and left the table with $2,500-$3,000.

Tell 'em other broke jokers be quiet.

Haters, Haters, Haters. This topic was not about his life, him being incarcerated, or his wife. People are so hilarious when they hate. it's funny to me. Oh and he is a winner, because whether he's a convict or can't vote, he still has more money than you. LMAO @ Haters!!!

Beginner's luck is usually based on the fact you don't know what you are doing so the rest of the table makes smart plays and doesn't know what the newbie will do next and often fold more often than not. Not to mention newbies will likely not play anything except cards we all know - like a straight or flush.
