Sunday 7th – Rob Eastaway: How to Win a Maths Bet in a Pub

What’s the point of maths? To help you to win bets in the pub of course! The best bets are ones where your opponent thinks the odds are in his favour. Bestselling maths author and broadcaster Rob Eastaway demonstrates his favourite examples, ranging from the newspaper bet to a game of ‘special’ poker, with a stunning Derren-Brown-style prediction along the way. And to add a bit of spice, Rob will be giving the audience a chance to win some money off him too. This talk is suitable for anyone who has ever been (or fancied going) to a pub. With any luck, you won’t have to pay for a drink for a while.
