15.S50  SSIM: How to Win at Texas Hold'em Poker
Instructors: Dimitris Bertsimas, Will (Wei) Ma

Group study of current topics related to management not otherwise included in curriculum.
This course teaches mathematical strategies used to win at Poker. Students should already know the rules of Texas Hold'em and know how to compute basic probabilities, although this will be reviewed. Students will be required to install a 3rd party software to play online poker, but no form of monetary exchange or illegal gambling will be endorsed. Poker is a mainstream game of surprisingly high skill level and its strategies are highly applicable to Wall Street jobs, and life in general. Permission not needed, please sign up directly on Websis. New for 2013: 75% lecture attendance will be required, unless you took the course last year, in which case superior tournament results will be required.
