Interview with Alex O’Brien: How poker trains the mind

Alex O'Brien

In this week’s Face-to-Face interview we bring you something slightly different. AGB managing editor Sharon Singleton speaks with Alex O’Brien, an author who is passionate about the game of poker and who has written a book about the game’s ability to change your way of thinking. She shares what she has learned and talks about the need for the industry to improve its image to present poker as a true skill-based game, rather than a male-dominated bad boys’ sport.
