From the poker table, to the boardroom table, to the kitchen table, strategic decision making impacts every aspect of our lives. Drawing on her academic studies in cognitive psychology and her real-world application of decision science at the poker table, Annie Duke offers a series of educational and inspirational presentations.

Bluff is a sexy concept
but widely overused.
If you use it too often,
it's going to get
you in trouble.

For The boardroom
decision making is never just about the suit
For the home
how to win with a full house
For sales
sometimes tipping your hand can be a smart strategy
For charities
a great hand always has a heart



“Annie Duke’s presentation at our law firm retreat was one of the highlights of the weekend. Her message focused on how to best benefit from feedback to assist in critical decision making. Her presentation was lively, informative and fun. Annie’s background as a champion poker player and her studies in cognitive psychology provide a terrific example of how an academic foundation can infuse and inform business practices. Annie’s tales from the poker world provided an interesting way to think about good decision making. The presentation resulted in energized discussions throughout the evening.”
