Psychologist Maria Konnikova had never played poker before when she approached Erik Seidel – Poker Hall of Fame inductee – and asked him to be her mentor. Yet Seidel’s guidance led to epiphanies about more than just gambling. She found that poker teaches you to accept luck for what it is and separate the things which can be controlled from those that can’t. With its lessons in human behaviour, poker can help us to make better decisions in life, not just cards.
