Michael Niwinski makes name for himself in poker

Poker News featured UBC psychology graduate Michael Niwinski who is competing in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event.

“I’m definitely more of a mathematically oriented guy. Every time I tell someone that my background is in psychology, they ask if that helps with poker,” he said. I would like to think it does a little, because I do like the mindset of getting into someone’s head and trying to figure out what’s going on, but for the most part I am a math player, I am an online player, and I feel like that’s where my biggest edge comes from.”
