Share: How A Professional Writer Turned Herself Into A World Class Poker Player

I found this article online and found it really interesting so I am sharing this with everyone else. Maybe you’re thinking about changing careers? Maybe this is a nudge to try being a professional poker player. Come join the fun!!

Konnikova decided that the best way to learn about the role of skill and luck in life is through poker, and so she decided to become a great poker player.

On this episode, we speak with her about how she did it, and her new book, “The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned To Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win.”
