Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree, 30, is a lady with many irons in the fire. She has modelled in mainstream magazines, co-hosted a show on Discovery Channel, and much more off the poker felt. On Sunday, she had her own political opinions published in The Independent newspaper.
Her article is part of the "If I Were Prime Minister"-series where 100 different contributors, for 100 days leading up to the General Election, get to write about just that - what they would do if they were the prime minster of the United Kingdom.
"So if I were Prime Minister, I would make classes in rational decision-making a compulsory part of the national curriculum. Too little focus is given in mainstream education on how to make sound decisions, and the various cognitive biases (ie illogical deviations from rational thought) that we all regularly fall victim to. As a poker player I've learned the hard way that poor decision making, be it from ego, stubbornness or superstition, can be costly both financially and emotionally," Boeree wrote.
