Title: The Card Shark
Course Section Number: FRT-101-08
Department: Freshman Tutorial
Description: When Eric Dunaway was a high school student, he was told by a prolific Physics teacher that every young man must know how to do two things before he graduates college: drive a stick-shift and play poker. Eric is proficient in both and wants to help others learn more about them too. He teaches classes on economics, strategy, and more! The world is poker, not chess. We are often confronted with situations where we must make decisions without all of the information we would need to do it perfectly. This tutorial will explore just how to make those decisions well by learning about various card games. Our focus will primarily be on No-limit Texas Hold 'Em, but we will also explore Blackjack, Uno, and Euchre, to name a few. Be ready to learn more about how our minds form beliefs, how they respond to decision-making under pressure, and also math.
