Course overview
A New Yorker writer with a Ph.D. in psychology, Maria Konnikova spent years studying how people manipulate one another, solve complex problems, and make decisions under pressure. Konnikova then decided to see if she could use her knowledge of human behavior to become a professional poker player—starting as a complete novice. The result of her experiment is The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win, a book that weaves together human psychology and poker.

In this course, you’ll hear how Konnikova used what she learned playing poker to minimize uncertainty, manage risk, and harness the fickle power of luck. You’ll also discover how understanding common poker elements like “tilting” and “folding” can help you develop your own healthy decision-making skills.
