The Lock-In - Maria Konnikova The Chip Race

    • Sports

This week we are locked in and blurting out wrong names with Maria Konnikova.

Maria brings her wealth of psychological insights to the table for a discussion on ‘Get Rich Quick’ schemes, short-term thinking, negative experiences at the poker tables, con artistry, control and poker players being their own bosses.

We also talk about Anna Khait’s alleged participation in a plot to spy on FBI agents and Alex O’Brien’s BBC article 'How a $10k poker win changed how I think’.

Fittingly, Dara’s strategy nugget has a psychology bent as it is a neat trick to help players who take their beats badly.

The show ends by us previewing Maria’s upcoming paperback release of ‘The Biggest Bluff’ which goes on sale June 8th!
