Using Game Theory, Math and Business techniques to play poker; by Neil Blumenfield.

Neil Blumenfield, third place finisher in the 2015 WSOP Main Event, tells how using business skills can help you win playing tournament poker.


Understanding your customer(s) and your competition:

* Are they interested in innovation or in playing it safe?
* Are they very cost conscious?
* Are they willing to take significant risks for the promise of a big win?  
* Are they looking to advance their career or just avoid getting fired?

Re: Tournament play

* Is the other player just trying to cash? (rather than ‘win’ #1rst place/place in #1rst, #2nd#3rd)
* Are they unwilling to take risks?
* Are they reckless?
* Will they never fold top pair, even on a very dangerous board?

Neil Blumenfield is #3rd place (out of 6,420 players) finisher in the 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event #68 for $3,398,298 ($3 mil+)
