Should a programmer know 2 big things: game theory and statistics?

it's not really about what you 'should' do, but what you 'want' to do. there's no rule of thumb for programming, it is not a narrow field anymore.

With that said, if you're interested in learning (I sure am!) there is excellent material on game theory from Yale available at academicearth.org/courses/game-theory
