WSOP Preparation: Focus, Focus, Focus
For many players, especially those from an online background, the experience of playing poker for 15 hours straight is a daunting task and one that can put a strain on your skills. This month Jared Tendler explains how to stay focused and maintain your A-game throughout the WSOP.

I want to stress this point, because it’s very important and is often not appreciated.

However, every single person with problems regarding focus has some issue with goals.
