Poker questions on University Challenge

Poker questions on University Challenge

Tuesday, 28 July 2009

Poker’s move into the mainstream appears to be coming more established by the day. The latest manifestation was a series of questions on highbrow quiz show University Challenge.

The team from Jesus College, Oxford (no relation to Chris Ferguson) were quizzed on their knowledge of poker hands. Shown pictures of three hands they were asked to identify the winner. They successfully identified a straight flush but stumbled when comparing two full houses and quads.

Dave Ulliott addressed the Oxford Union earlier this year. It looks like Jesus College’s students could do with him making a return visit in time for their second round appearance.
