What makes a poker game “good?” For that matter, what makes any human interaction “good?” As players and people, what social behavior helps us create enjoyable scenes, as opposed to tight and uncomfortable ones?

Helping to answer these questions today is Matt Berkey. Matt is the CEO of the Solve For Why Academy training program, where he and a team of elite players provide a unique, advanced poker coaching experience built on real-time analytics and the psychology of personal interactions. He’s also played in some of the highest stakes cash games ever televised on the planet.

Today, Matt and Nick have a long overdue conversation about creating authentic experiences, the signals we send and receive in poker (and everywhere else), infinite game when it comes to network expansion, and the skills needed to excel as poker keeps changing.
