Game Theory Requirements

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum so first of all I want to say hi at everyone, and apologize for my terrible english.
I'm a professional poker player that wanna study game theory, I got some math knowledge but I don't really know whether is it enough or not.
So basically what are the math requirements in order to understand well game thoery?
I also lurked around a bit to find a very basic game theory book and I found this ... 615&sr=8-1

I email the author about the same question I'm asking you but I didn't got any reply...
I hope to have better luck here.

Re: Game Theory Requirements

Probability and statistics and two high-school level algebra classes would be a bare minimum. But calculus is very handy if you know it and pretty common for some parts of game theory.
