I was a mathematics instructor for 23 years, and hold an MA in Mathematics Education. Now retired, I tutor advanced mathematics and have time to pursue my passions: which include poker. As an educator, I have long been interested in how people approach the subject of mathematics. I have always tried to share not only technical knowledge, but a perspective as well. Of course mathematics is an essential component of poker skill. It is still an unsolved game - with plenty of room for debate and learning.
