    Default Poker Playing Delta STs

    Poker, cards and delta STs. This is an actual thing I have noticed in several of them, this love of playing cards. Especially SLIs.

    Anyone else seen it?

    I know beta STs and alpha NTs into poker as well. I used to play a bit too. Is it really type related?

    Everyone on these top poker players VI delta ST to me. Most seem SLI.

    The necessity to remain cold and unaffected visually lends itself well to poker.

    Like does it get anymore SLI then this?

    ^ I mean I guess you could call this guy an alpha NT, maybe.


    But this guy as anything but an ST? come on.

    It's something I've noticed. I type a guy SLI and lo and behold he has a poker table which he uses regularly. How surprising.

    It's an Si thing mixed with logics of actions mixed with introversive sport.

    Video guy obnoxious for sure.

    I never said ALL poker players are SLI. Only that I have met several in my world and this leads me to believe there is something to it.

    Off the top of my head (take with a huge grain of salt...)

    Phil Hellmuth - Could be a very conceited ILI I guess, but likely Si/Ne valuer (LII/SEI)?
    Tony G - SLE
    Negreanu - ILE
    Phil Ivey - LSI as a guess, way too secretive to be certain
    Sam Tricket - Si/Ne, SLI
    Tom Dwan - Think I typed him as IEI at one point but seems Gamma NT to me now, LIE-Ni?
    Phil Galfond - LII
    Vanessa Selbst - SLE
    Antonio Esfandiari - ILE (looks like Jurgen Klopp?)
    Phil Laak - Si/Ne
    Barry Greenstein - ILI
    Doyle Brunson - LSE-Si
    Erica Schoenberg - ESI
    Gus Hansen - Looks EIE?
    David Benyamine - LIE

    I know an SLI who was really into poker. Basically he saw it as a get-rich-quick scheme (mostly with ). However he wasn't really able to assess his ability accurately because of weak (he was pretty bad actually and ended up losing a lot of money). Fortunately last time I checked he has been putting more energy into a more stable career.

    The actual playing of poker is mostly about , with some . Theory and calculation are only going to help you up to a point, it's a hugely psychological game based on intimidation and being unpredictable.

    Yeah, I got into poker back when I was a kid so I've watched these players play for ages.

    I used to play back in University myself and made a couple of grand from it but had to quit in the end and only play casually now.

    Sure but be aware of the risk involved. A friend of mine wanted to play as well but he has the type of personality that gets addicted to things very easily, so I ended up having to sort of prohibit him from ever playing

    Just make sure you never gamble with what you're not prepared to lose and it'll all work out
