NEW YORK CITY — A journalist working on a poker book has put it on hold after becoming pretty awesome at cards.
The New York Post reports New Yorker reporter Maria Konnikova — who holds a PHD in physcology — won $84,600 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure competition in January, gaining entry to the No-Limit Hold’em Championship next year in the process. She’s made $200k from playing poker.
Despite her success, Konnikova says she isn’t giving up on writing, telling the Post that this all of it will wind up the book. Now she’s training for the No Limit Hold-Em tournament, which according to the website,has a minimum prize pool of $8,000,000.
Konnikova told the Post her book, “The Biggest Bluff” will be available in summer or fall 2019.
