Poker Proponent Charles Nesson on Colbert Report
Interview is Available Online
Last week, Harvard law professor and founder of the Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society (GPSTS) Charles Nesson made an appearance on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. He faced off with Stephen Colbert about the strategic benefits of playing poker and described the recent laws affecting online poker.
“Online [poker] is like a school; it’s right there for you,” Nesson said.
He also had to endure the trademark cynicism of Colbert, who playfully sparred with Nesson about the seriousness of the game.
Nesson also outlined some of his goals for the newly-formed GPSTS, including forming an online poker room that specifically exists to help people learn how to use the skills gained from online poker in real life. He also proposed that all of the presidential candidates get together and play poker on The Colbert Report to see how they handle the strategy.
The GPSTS was formed this summer at Harvard, and charters quickly formed at Universities around the country. Click here to read more about it.
