An evening with Vanessa Rousso

Ah, couldn't resist to use that headline ;-) But this was indeed a very remarkable evening. A few weeks ago I read an article about a workshop with Vanessa Rousso to be held in Regensburg. I talked to Stephan Kalhammer, who was the organizer of this event, and it sounded indeed very interesting. The topic was "game theory".

So I went to Regensburg today first enjoying the nice weather in the old town before attending the evening workshop. It was a small but good crowd of people that consisted of some players that had been playing poker for 2-4 years, a PokerStars Supernova, a laywer from a well know law-firm and professional poker player Hans-Martin Vogl.

Vanessa turned out to be not only a very nice and likeable person ... she's also a hell of a teacher. That kind of a teacher were you don't want to miss a single word because every single word seems to be important. When she's teaching you really tend to forget that she's only in her mid 20's. She makes the very theroretical topic of "game theory" very visible and understandable. For every theory she seems to have a real-live example that helps to understand the point she wanted to make.

More then once I realized things I already do in my game but this workshop helped to put all those small pieces together into a bigger framework. What I've learned today won't change my game in general but I will be much more aware and conscious about several things I do and others do.

So if you ever have the opportunity to get a poker lesson from her - don't miss it!
