2. Saturday, 18 Mar, 2017 02:00pm - 06:30pm - Poker and decision making 

The UPenn / Wharton and Columbia alumni clubs present an interesting and fun way to better decision-making. We all learned during economy class that people are rational. That we all make rational decisions. But reality tells us otherwise. We are predictably irrational. Our experiences and biases consistently keep fooling us. By understanding how our mind works, we can learn not only to make better decisions, but predict, influence and facilitate that of others. And how better to do that than during a game of poker? Because poker is just like business: we have to make a lot of quick decisions under pressure, in a competitive environment, without sufficient information, while managing scarce resources. And we have to adapt our strategy to a constantly changing world. We're going to enter this world on the afternoon of Saturday, 18 March. And don't worry, if you haven't played poker before. You will learn it during the session. 

Venue: BLK 71 #04-20/21 Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139951

KCLASS is pleased to invite you to an extra-special celebration this year at the British Club as we celebrate a day of nostalgia and fun. Duel Day is KCL's annual commemoration of a duel fought at the beginning of the college's history, and is an excuse for remembering our roots and history. As Duel Day lunch this year falls on April Fool's Day, this year's theme is "Alice in Wonderland" so come as a character from the book, or any children's story character. There will be a prize for the best-dressed! A highlight of the afternoon is a interesting talk by two representatives of the Society of Paranormal Investigators (Singapore) on investigating the paranormal in Singapore. One of them, Mr Ricardo Choo, is an expert in Thai Magic and Chinese Metaphysics, and is the author of 'The Spirit and Voodoo World of Thailand'. Festivities will include a pub-quiz, with prizes to be won! We look forward to seeing everyone that lovely spring afternoon.
