Sam Holden is a former professional poker player who made his debut in 2011 by finishing 8th overall in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Several years after leaving the limelight of his profession, Sam explains how studying philosophy at university helped him to better understand the roles of luck, knowledge, and happiness in life. He is now owner of the Monument Pub in Canterbury, where he hopes to create a unique space for good food, drink, and conversation once the pandemic eases.
