“Russian Poker Voice” Ilya Gorodetsky, Leading CIS Poker Journalist, Poker Tournaments Commentator, Chess Candidate Master, gave a lecture at RANEPA Summer Campus. The lecture covered poker thinking and its capability to help in real life and business.

Ilya pointed out that it is a big misconception to consider poker a card game.
Poker is a game with incomplete information, and lack of this information makes up for mathematical calculation and certain mathematical models building. Game psychological aspect is also important: gamblers take into account facial expressions, gestures, they read emotions and catch a bluff. The luck factor plays an important role which people often underestimate.

At the end of the lecture the speaker thanked the participants and noted their high level of knowledge and motivation. He advised them to wisely assess the chances of plan success or failure before agreeing to participate in any project or to invest money, and, of course, to take into account the luck factor. You need to take those factors which an investor cannot influence for granted.

The Campus will be held in Innopolis, next to Kazan. The organizers of the Summer Campus of the Presidential Academy are the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, with the support of the Group of Companies ACIG.
