First meeting GPSTS: http://www.gpsts.org/harvard-law-school-poker-strategic-thinking-society-first-meeting
Tutorial: Discuss the "riddle of three hats" Nesson elaborates upon in the video. What level of thinking is fundamentally important to solve the riddle? Next, discuss where we want to go into during the remainder of the course.
In the second part of the tutorial, we will discuss the problems for Week 2.
Assignment: Write a blog post of about 1000 words about your initial ideas on the value of poker in academia or other areas of life. Everyone who signed up for this course must have ideas on this. We will discuss the essays in our next synchronous chat-session. IF you are unable to be online during the session, comment on the blog posts in the blog.
