Description

Before she decided to become a poker pro, Maria Konnikova didn’t know how many cards are in a deck. But she did have a Ph.D. in psychology, a brilliant coach, and a burning desire to know whether life is driven more by skill or chance. She found some answers in poker — and in her new book The Biggest Bluff, she’s willing to tell us everything she learned.

"you want to be liked more than you want to win." that just about summed up my life.

Great episode and format! Would love to have more of these or a spin-off on psychology, management and anthropology. Minor suggestion: when editing make it more obvious that you are starting a quote (bias: I'm not a native speaker listening at 1,3x speed with silence trim) Thank you
