When it comes to poker success stories, we notice that many who were able to make it to the top come from different types of people from various walks of life; however, it seems like individuals who had the highest success rate are the ones who are analytically-minded and highly-knowledgeable with numbers.

I can see, this as a try, by her own words to improve her own public speaking skills, but at the same time growing the game? One way or another it is a card game. Is there a reason going into such lengths, to draw more people in?

I wrote a comment last day about an accountant or mathematicians and i mean they have a great chance to make money from poker. The condition is to learn strategy and have time to play. Who loves math, make money and this is for many careers. Liv Boeree is an example.
TED talks are the most selfindulging circlejerking pseudo-intellectual showcase of mediocrity that holds no real value nor brings lights to any issue which actually matters IRL but it's hyped up be something completely else. It's beyond my understanding how this shallow institution became a driving force for the conference business. And if somebody wants to tell me that I am just a contrarian troll - I DARE YOU to watch a dozen of TED talks on youtube, you will find out soon this is just a vehicle for drive these peoples egos to somewhere where they could feel their life's work is important. No, it's not.

I have seen some of these videos, not only from this "institution" but a couple others, and i agree that some people think they are doing something great, when they are actually arent Probably it is like an old saying we are having here, and goes like this: If you do not brag about your own house, it will fall and will crush you

yeah I have to admit that what bowie is saying does really have some truth, actually more than a bunch of ted talks itself. of course there are some jewels hidden in a pile of sh1t that you might find by digging deep in manure in your spare time... not saying that this is the way to spend your free time though

I think it is interesting to see and hear this ted talk and i think i go to YouTube and see what she say about poker akd maybe i can hear some interesting information how to win more money and be better poker player
No amount of TEDtalk gonna make you play poker better because these videos are not intended to make you learn to play the game better. The only information you need to win more money is that you probably better of not spending your money on gambling altogether.

Liv Boeree looks chic and classy on and off the poker table. Her presentation was well done and to the point. A 15-minute presentation is not too long, not too short. Doesn't she look a bit skinny in this video? Maybe it's her outfit that's making her look thin? Maybe it's just camera angles?
