FROM TED: My guest on today’s show once again is Annie Duke, decision-making expert, former world-famous poker player, and author of the best seller, Thinking in Bets. I had a chance to interview Annie at The Investment Institute’s Fall Forum in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and the live interview follows. Special thanks to Andrea Szigethy and Donna Holly, founders of the Institute, for having Annie and me down for their terrific event.
Episode 18 of the NewRetirement podcast is an interview with Annie Duke — a best selling author, public speaker and former world champion poker professional. We discuss her new book Thinking in Bets which focuses on decision making, beliefs and learning when you have imperfect information through the lens of what she has learned at the poker table and in her own behavioral finance research.
On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we discuss how decision-making, “information liquidity,” and luck fit into our daily lives — and how a solid understanding of these concepts can point to an underappreciated benefit of free expression.
As a podcast host, you are not supposed to have favorite episodes – but you still do. This is one of those. I have the pleasure today of bringing you my conversation with Annie Duke. Annie is a decision scientist and former professional poker player. In fact, for two decades, she was one of the best in the world. In 2004, she beat a field of 234 players to win her first World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet. In 2010, she won the prestigious NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship.
In this show, you’ll have your mind blown by Annie’s insights regarding following conventional wisdom (even if it doesn’t make sense), focusing too much on the results (and not enough on the right choice), and accepting a level of uncertainty to gain a HUGE advantage over your competition. Annie’s theories on “thinking in bets” are designed to help others navigate a world where we can’t be certain of an outcome, but still, come out on top over time.
Annie sits down with Michael McCarthy from The Artful Trader podcast.
Do you and your team want to get better at making decisions that are not the status quo? Would you like your team to take the right risks and encourage a culture that learns from success and failure? Did you know that being too results-oriented can get in the way of making the highest equity decisions? If so, this is the podcast for you. Annie Duke, professional speaker, and Decision Strategist will share her research and help you learn how to create a process that helps you make better decisions while encouraging learning and risk-taking. She helps people have uncertainty with confidence.
