I had a great time reading this article.  I like patterns, I always look for them (my favorite part of geometry was doing proofs.  Solving for X in pre-algebra was kind of fun) and sometimes see poker as this big puzzle where the decisions neatly fit together.

For me to really understand something, I have to be able to visualize and feel how it works, then I get it.  Poker is a combination of both for me.  I find this article pretty exciting.  I wish I had been educated with this kind of knowledge in mind; I would have been a hell of a lot smarter.

From the article:
“Art sometimes precedes scientific analysis,” one of the van Gogh researchers said. And the relationship between art and science can go the other way too: Scientists can use art to understand math.”
