A Harvard law professor with a particular interest in Internet law has established a University-based think-tank The Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society (GPSTS), which is designed to take root in colleges and universities the world over and will use poker as a an educational tool to teach basic life skills to war games at military colleges.

"Poker is one of the best metaphors for teaching life skills across a variety of disciplines," Nesson said through a press release. Nesson is officially announcing the formation of the group on Aug. 19, in Singapore, at "State of Play" international conference. The society's website, www.gpsts.com, will go live that day.

Nesson accepts poker and its strategies could be used for the good all that come in contact with it. The goal of this association is to offer strategic thinking workshops to secondary schools, colleges and community centers utilizing poker as a method to teach strategic thinking.

Harvard will become the foundation for the first GPSTS, and the society ultimately plan to hold NCCA-style championships that will feature teams of poker players representing graduate programs to professionals from all stations in life.

in the press release Mr. Nesson indicates his belief that the poker concepts can be translated on many levels, and can open a mind to create a better non conventional method of learning.
