In a special edition of the Mental Game Podcast today Barry Carter and I discuss the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and my most commonly asked questions about it from a mental game perspective.
I’ve coached a lot of professional players and staking groups on how to tackle this series, which can be tiring, high pressure and very frustrating. It really is one of those series which you can lose before you even start if you have not prepared well enough.
In this podcast we discuss:
- How to deal with motivational issues as a staked player
- Dealing with the pressure of big buy-in events
- Staying focused when you are down for the series
- Overcoming tiredness
- Dealing with the frustration of busting out after going deep
- How to avoid getting overexcited at the start
If you found this webinar helpful and want to improve your mental game before WCOOP begins, check out my exclusive WCOOP preparation webinar on August 25 at 1pm ET. If you join before August 22 you will also be invited to a free follow up webinar halfway through WCOOP where you can ask me anything.
