There are many similarities between trading/investing and poker.

Calculating probabilities, moving when the odds are in your favour, profitably managing risk and making sure you don't blow up.

That said I have only ever read about poker and never bothered playing.

As I become more experienced at trading I am starting to think that I could improve my trading abilities by learning to play poker.

Has anyone here found that playing poker has sharpened up their trading game? O even vice versa?

Here is a link to an article that details some of the poker exploits of successful hedge fund managers:
