Maria Konnikova’s journalistic deep-dive into the world of high-stakes poker took her somewhere she didn’t expect: under the tutelage of Erik Seidel, one of the greatest players in the game, Konnikova went from novice to pro player in less than a year, becoming a poker star in her own right. This dazzling talk follows Konnikova’s immersion in the world of poker, as an observer, and then as a big-winning player. But this isn’t a talk about poker. As Konnikova charismatically explains, it 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.
