What Got You There with Sean DeLaney


Jun 21, 2020

Maria Konnikova is a Harvard and Columbia educated psychologist, author and, in recent years, professional poker player.

Over the last year Maria stepped away from her job and entered into the world of poker to write her new book about poker and the balance of skill and luck in life called  The Biggest Bluff.

 The Biggest Bluff follows Maria’s immersion in the world of poker, from novice to professional, under the tutelage of one of the greatest players in the game, Erik Seidel.

But this is not a book about poker. It, rather, is an exploration of the role chance plays in our lives, and how we can learn to play our best game even in the face of mounting odds.

How do the skills learned at the poker table translate to the skills required to live a better, more thoughtful and, ultimately, successful life? 

The Biggest Bluff isn’t about how to play poker. It’s about how to play the world.
