REG is a community of professional poker players interested in making a positive impact. They recognize that the rationality skills for maximizing expected monetary value in poker transfer perfectly into maximizing the expected impact of charitable donations. Adriano Manno and Ruari Donnelly will be giving a short presentation on their organisation with time for questions afterwards. We will also be joined by the Cambridge University Poker society to talk a little bit about the modalities of earning and giving as a poker player. The event will be followed by alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks.
