A thread of learnings from poker for startups/founders/businesses in general:
1. Find a table where you can win/Play where you can win - Compete in markets where you can win. The aim is winning not winning against someone specific
#poker #startups
2. Milk a good hand/Ride the wave - If you find yourself in the right place at the right time, ride it. That is the part of the luck which you need to maximize. Be nimble footed, be opportunistic. #poker #startups
3. Know when to fold/Pot Control/Minimize risk - If you find yourself in the middle of an adverse situation or a hypothesis which seems to be failing - put the brakes om, slow down, revaluate and decide #poker #startups

I have been asked how this would work. I welcome you to join me on a journey how #cashless #casino's could operate in 2020. I'll explain it based on the example of "Awesome Casino Vegas" or "ACV" which I made up for this example.

This is the exciting future in a thread... (1/x)
ACV is a #casino in #vegas and needs to go cashless. They choose to issue a stable #token on the #CSCL. $1= 1ACVT. They have their own branded #whitelabel version of the #casinocoin #BrankrollManager. Their customers can purchase #tokens at a cash cage... (2/x)
...or via #debit/#credit (and #crypto 😉) via the wallet. Customers get #KYC'ed on the fly when onboarding during the wallet setup. All transactions can be pinned down to an individual. They know exactly who is who and who did what and when. (3/x)

On a poker table the day before yesterday, a wise man told me Twitter where you give gyaan. Here is my first attempt, connecting the similarities between poker, and trading #poker #trading
Learn to survive
If you don't bet, you can't win. If you lose all your chips, you can't bet. Learn the balance. Survive your initial days until you learn. Don't go against the pros on your first night with a pile of cash. Start small. #poker #trading
Table selection
If you earn less than 100k, don’t play tables with 25k buy-ins against millionaires. If you lose, you are out in one game. Similarly, if you have a 2L trading account, you shouldn't trade 4 Lots of Yes Bank at 20x leverage. Try 1 lot Nifty. #poker #trading

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
