### Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Why would you believe that?

Should you believe every statement everywhere is actually trying to convey their opposite meaning?

Hmmm, I was not talking about you of course.

But surely you should have been told that in that field there are only two books that are necessary!

### Re: Math Pick-up Lines

P is a game of people.

A tell in pokr is a change in a player's behavior or demeanor that is claimed by some to give clues to that player's assessment of their hand. A player gains an advantage if they observe and understand the meaning of another player's tell, particularly if the tell is unconscious and reliable. Sometimes a player may fake a tell, hoping to induce their opponents to make poor judgments in response to the false tell. More often, people try to avoid giving out a tell, by maintaining a pokr face regardless of how strong or weak their hand is.

The strongest players are the ones that incorporate math, computing and psychology into their game. David is strongest in math, Mike in psychology.

After reading Mike's classic work, you will be able to answer that for yourself.

You can use Wikipedia to learn the rules and you can ask specific questions. Why are you reading his book?
