I have been fortunate enough to have long time clients make the November Nine in each of the last two years. Last year it was 3rd place finisher Jorryt Van Hoof, and this year it was 4th place finisher Max Steinberg.
Max is a former WSOP bracelet winner and these days spends most of his time making a living at Daily Fantasy Sports.
I don’t publicly share specific details about what my clients and I do when we work together, but Max graciously volunteered to discuss this in depth. In particular we went into great detail about how he overcame a perfectionism issue which could have really hurt his performance at the final table.
In this episode you will learn about:
- How we improved his confidence during the four month break
- Why perfectionism stands in the way of your game and how he overcame it
- Peak performance poker on the biggest stage in poker
- His view on the tanking debate and how he dealt with it at the final table
- The mental game differences and similarities between poker and Daily Fantasy Sports
Max is a very talented hard working player, he is also a very humble and open guy away from the table and clearly the balance he has in his life has helped his poker results and general mindset towards the game. It has been a career highlight to share his journey towards the biggest final table in poker.
