I was never good at card games, mainly because I never played them (rough childhood, another time another place). So you can imagine the fun time I spent in probability counting the likelihood in drawing 4 heart of spades (is that even a hand?). Bridges? Never heard of them. Chess? Not the European kind with knights, queens and stewards that's for sure. Never been to Las Vegas either.
Oh I never did any sports either because that is a waste of time.
I recently developed an interest in game theory, in conjunction with an economics class I am taking. But I am not sure what this subject is all about.
Does the intuition in game theory come from realistic games? I recall watching a beautiful mind and John Nash was studying some game play.
To all the game theorists out there, how much real life games I need to know how study this subject?
