UNLV Gaming Podcast 5: Jacob Avery

By David G. Schwartz on March 12, 2009 4:11 PM | Permalink

The fifth episode of the UNLV Gaming Research podcast series is up, and it's a great one: Jacob Avery, our February 2009 Research Fellow, talks about his sociological research into poker, which started in an Atlantic City card room and has taken him to UNLV Special Collections' Reading Room.

Avery, a graduate student in sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, has made excellent use of the collections here at UNLV, integrating them with his field notes to create a fascinating analysis of the "action" at the poker table. I hope to see more fine work from him in the future.
