Poker and Pickup: Thinking Levels

As I've been immersing myself in poker, I've been overwhelmed by the parallels with pickup, in theory, practice, and in my experience as a student.

I'm not sure if this is pure coincidence, my mind trying to find a pattern where there's not one, or a genuine underlying pattern that probably extends to other areas of learning.

Pickup is the only other thing I can think of that I learned rapidly and by immersion. I made it my world for a year or two. As a result, I remember the learning process, whereas something like web development I can't really remember because I've been learning gradually.

Winning Through Intimidation


I borrowed "Winning Through Intimidation" by Robert Ringer from my friend Chris. The book is exceptionally good.

I've been meaning to review it, but I already returned the copy I borrowed to Chris. Thus, this review has been left undone for a long time.

That said, it ain't going to get any easier for me to review, so I've decided to stop dragging my heels and instead review it from memory.

First point - GET IT.

Highly, highly recommended. If possible, the original 1970's version - "Winning Through Intimidation." He toned it down and re-released it as "To Be Or Not To Be Intimidated? That Is The Question" about 10 years ago.
