Listen now
Today, we are going to talk about one of my favorite hobbies, Poker!, and how that relates to investing and finance. I’ve recently been watching a lot of poker online as well as reading Phil Hellmuth’s autobiography, Poker Brat, which gives a great insight into how Phil got so good at poker, and some of the risks he had to take to where got today. Today’s episode I will briefly go over one of the most famous types of poker games, Texas Hold’em, and then talk about what I think are transferable skills between playing poker and investing! I hope that you all enjoy! * How to play Texas Hold’em * Why Poker is not just about probability and statistics, and how it’s just as much about strategy and psychology * Why it’s fascinating to play poker with your friends and to see how they react under pressure * Skills that are transferable from Poker to Investing * Managing your bank roll * Making good decisions with incomplete information * Managing your emotions (going on “Tilt” in poker) * Why you and your friends should play games of poker!
