Interview with Jason Somerville

JcarverMy guest today on The Mental Game of Poker Podcast is without doubt one of the most driven, hardworking and enthusiastic minds playing the circuit today.

Jason Somerville is a WSOP bracelet winner with over $5 million in earnings. His caliber is so high that Russell Thomas, 2012 November Niner, asked him for coaching before the final table. He one of the great new ambassadors for the game, and sacrifices some EV by playing a reduced schedule to work tirelessly for Ultimate Poker. Amazingly in 2014, he is one of the few openly gay high profile players.

In this show we discuss:

  • How his ambition and drive now includes an emphasis on happiness and fun.
  • How being honest with himself has been freeing and helped him grow as a player and person.
  • The incredible methods he used to get Russell Thomas to prepare for the 2012 main event final table.
  • His experience becoming the first high profile poker player to come out as gay.

Jason really is one of the easiest guys in the world to interview and I could talk with him all day. He’s one of those rare individuals who has figured out how to be informative and entertaining. You will learn a lot from him today.
