Interview with Liv Boeree

liv_boeree_pokerstarsblogThere is an interesting theory that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If you surround yourself successful people, you will strive to become more successful yourself. Liv Boeree is a testament to that. She started her career being coached by Annie Duke on a TV show, and in our interview today you will learn how she has continued to use collaboration with other players to enhance her skills.

If you follow Liv, you will know that she never stops adding to her skillset. Whether it is poker, the guitar, presenting, or charity work she is a highly dynamic person with an incredible array of interests and skills.

In our discussion you will discover:

  • How working on projects outside of poker have kept her passion for the game alive.
  • Why learning is so important, especially during downswings.
  • How she never rests on her laurels and always strives to learn from the elite players she mixes with.
  • The importance of having structure and rituals, and how that can be problematic on the road.
  • How she deals with criticism, both internal and external.

Like many poker players I have interviewed recently, Liv is really focused on self-improvement and her mental game. This is a great interview for anyone who has a passion for learning and always striving for more.

Interview with Jake Cody

JakeMy guest today on the Mental Game of Poker Podcast is the youngest ever Triple Crown winner Jake Cody. He won an EPT, WPT and WSOP title in an 18-month period.

Rarely does someone become a true overnight success. Instead, we see someone young like Jake come along, take the poker world by storm and assume he got lucky. But, you’ll be surprised at how much work went into getting Jake to the level of winning majors like the EPT.

In this show you will discover:

  • How Jake dealt with, and used, skepticism towards poker from his family and friends to stay grounded.
  • That he almost quit the game, and what he did to get through a rough patch.
  • His method for making sure his game has progressed every six months.
  • Why his Triple Crown success did not go to his head.
  • The benefits and drawbacks of blocking your emotions.
  • How becoming a father has changed his career.

The one thing that is abundantly clear in Jake is his passion for the game. He is clearly a player who has mastered the art of learning and performance, and to him this is of great importance.

Thanks to Jake for coming on the show. Be sure to check out his website and follow him on Twitter: @JakeCody

Positive Poker with Daniel Negreanu

DanielMy guest today on The Mental Game of Poker Podcast needs no introduction. Daniel Negreanu is one of the most famous and most successful poker players on the planet.

It is always interesting to delve into the mind of an elite performer, but I am particularly interested in Daniel because in recent years he has made a public commitment to self-improvement. This seemingly has had a big positive correlation with his poker results.

This is perhaps the most self-help focused podcast I have done, and we discuss:

  • His approach to learning and how he opens himself up to feedback.
  • The importance of taking personal responsibility and not falling into a victim mentality.
  • Why he is not afraid to look stupid, and how addiction to looking good and being right is what holds many people back.
  • How setting goals has been crucial to his poker success.
  • The benefits and drawbacks of positive thinking and visualization.

In particular I think you will learn a lot from our discussion about positive thinking. Daniel and I have different perspectives but we still found common ground. If you’re interested in reading an article I wrote about the “Power of Pessimism” click here.

Thanks to Daniel for coming on the show and sharing his perspective. Be sure follow him on Twitter: @RealKidPoker

Paul RatchfordMy latest guest on the Mental Game of Poker Podcast is Paul “Vulcans” Ratchford. He’s a prolific coach for DragTheBar.com and is author of a new book “Exploitive No Limit Holdem.” Before Paul entered the poker 6 years after the great recession took him from his corporate job at JP Morgan. In poker he’s a cash game player who’s averaged a 7BB/100 winrate since 2009 at a mix of stakes from $2/$4 up to $25/$50, and has won another $100k in live tournament winnings.

He’s a thoughtful and smart guy who has a lot of interesting things to say. In today’s show we discuss:

  • His take on All-in EV (he thinks it’s awesome)
  • Why he doesn’t care to calculate variance
  • Understanding the subtle difference in his tilt
  • How he maintains a high level of performance when he shows up to work and doesn’t get paid
  • Why confidence isn’t enough to be successful

If you’d like to learn more about Paul or his new book, check out his website, and follow him on Twitter: @PokerCapitalist
