#295 Snucker. Richard has this week performed live on stage for the first time since March, but a certain papier-mâché drunkard stole the show. But never mind, Richard is delighted to chat to journalist and pro poker player Maria Konnikova. They discuss her rise from someone who didn't know how many cards were in a pack to a poker champion in the space of months; whether luck or skill rules our world; how our hands don't bluff; how poker can help us in the real world; and what it's like to meet a world champion self-playing snookerist. Quite a lot of poker content, but it's more about knowing ourselves and coping with the random shit that life and cards throw up.
