NYU discussion on poker, business today

A Dealer in Action

Poker pro and entrepreneur Taylor Caby will be speaking at New York University-Stern today from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. (EDT) to discuss the links between success at the poker table and success at the boardroom table.

The discussion is co-sponsored by the NYU-Stern chapter of the student-led Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society, the NYU Professional Development Society and the Quantitative Finance Society.

It is part of an ongoing series of forums, summits and speaking engagements by some of the top poker experts and players in the world, put on by the GPSTS.

Caby will talk about how he has used the strategies that make him a winning poker player to create a thriving online business. The 24-year-old is a highly successful online poker player, and since graduating from college he also co-founded a poker education company online.

"We are absolutely thrilled to host Taylor Caby at our NYU-Stern chapter. Mr. Caby is exactly the type of individual that the GPSTS is interested in, in that while he has found success at the poker table he has found even greater success in applying the strategies he learned playing poker to the wider business world," GPSTS Executive Director Andrew Woods said.

"He has a highly informed sense of how poker simulates behaviors in the boardroom and at the negotiations table."

The GPSTS was founded by Harvard Law Professor Charles Nesson in 2007 to organize student poker societies at major universities and help them promote the use of poker as a teaching tool.

The GPSTS believes that poker teaches and sharpens important life skills, making it more than just a fun game. So the group is dedicated to sharing the poker strategic thinking philosophy, staging strategic poker matches between chapters and schools, hosting conferences and seminars that explore the strategic thinking inherent in poker and exploring new ways to use poker as a life skills educational tool.

Past participants in GPSTS seminars have included poker celebrities such as Jim McManus and Mike Sexton.

Today's seminar with Taylor Caby will take place in Room UC60 of Tisch Hall at 40 West 4th St., New York, N.Y.
