Welcome to the Whiskey Politics Podcast hosted by Dave Sussman. Whiskey Politics takes a civil tone and has fun while talking about serious issues, and interviewing political luminaries, pundits, and journalists.
Annie Duke, world champion poker player (retired), sought-after speaker, and best-selling author joins Dave Sussman to discuss how Thinking in Bets can be applied to politics (the November 2018 election), business, and our personal lives. It’s a fascinating, scientific approach to life that led Annie to win millions and has given her the title “Dutchess of Poker.”
For two decades, Annie was one of the top poker players in the world. In 2004, she bested a field of 234 players to win her first World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet. The same year, she triumphed in the $2 million winner-take-all, invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions. In 2010, she won the prestigious NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship. Prior to becoming a professional poker player, Annie was awarded a National Science Foundation Fellowship to study Cognitive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.More
