Overview

In this book, experienced poker player, tournament champion, attorney, and businessman David Apostolico takes core poker philosophies and applies them to various business situations. Readers learn how to develop a poker mindset to help them in all aspects of their business lives. Apostolico, who has matched wits with the world’s top professionals on the invitation only Professional Poker Tour and negotiated mergers and acquisitions on Wall Street, says there are no hard and fast rules to either poker or business success, yet the skills involved in both are extremely similar. Reading the opposition, adapting to changing circumstances, being innovative, and thinking like a winner are necessary to making a living on the felt or in the board room.

Whether you are negotiating a deal, managing your finances, marketing products, running a business, or trying to climb the corporate ladder, a solid poker strategy can prove invaluable. Before you make a move in any of these areas, you should read this insightful book to learn how to play your hand for maximum strength.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every business student and entrepreneur should read Poker Strategies For A Winning Edge In Business. The biggest poker games in the world have nothing to do with the green felt and David Apostolico has managed to translate his intimate knowledge of poker into a valuable roadmap to more effective business practices and strategies."
—Steven Lipscomb; Founder, President and CEO of the World Poker Tour

"A corporate attorney and a poker player…a dangerous combination, especially if you’re on the receiving end. Apostolico is a master of both rarefied arts, as well as the most readable of writers. I’m amazed, and very grateful, that he’s chosen to share his trade secrets with us. You will be, too—whether in business, or poker, or both. In the end, as he argues so persuasively, they require uncannily similar skills."
—Anthony Holden, author of Big Deal and Bigger Deal

"The principles to win at poker are the same for succeeding at business and this book hits them all."
—Antonio Esfandiari, World Poker Tour winner; World Series of Poker bracelet winner
