“The Mental Game of Poker is the only book I recommend“
2012 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Merson
“His insights and input have been invaluable to me.”
Jorry von Hoof, 2014 WSOP Main Event 3rd place
“Jared has been my coach for over 4 years now. His insights and input have been invaluable to me. The effect of his coaching reach even outside my poker success, and into my life.”
“My mental game is tough, I don’t tilt any more”
2013 WSOP bracelet winner Justin Oliver
(Immediately after winning the $2,500 Four Max event.)
“My mental game is tough, and I’ll tell you why. My mental game used to be terrible, I used to tilt, I used to go insane, and this is going to be a plug for Jared Tendler, he wrote a book called The Mental Game of Poker and I don’t tilt any more.”
“The best poker book ever written, and it’s not even close.”
Lex Veldhuis, PokerStars Team Pro
“I really can’t imagine any poker player who wouldn’t benefit from reading this book.”
“His work can be applied to any field”
James Altucher – New York Times Bestselling Author
Jared Tendler unravels all of the myths we have about the emotions and the mental game of a highstakes activity (think: investing, trading, starting a business, performing well at a job, etc). He then goes step by step on how to unravel those myths and improve upon them. The discussion of how talent transforms into skill is great and applies to any field.
“I’m able to play very long sessions virtually tilt free”
Dusty “Leatherass” Schmidt
“Jared has been a tremendous help to my game. For those that read my blog you are probably sick of hearing his name because I have mentioned our work together so many times. The thing is though, he has just been such an enormous help to me. I used to have to end most of my sessions early because I would just play and play until I would go on tilt and that would be the end of it.
Now I am able to play VERY long sessions while mass multi-tabling and play virtually tilt free and can honestly say I now bring my A game to the table nearly every time I play poker.
“Jared helped me figure out how to be a professional”
Max Steinberg, 2012 WSOP bracelet winner
“I give Jared a lot of credit for helping me figure out how to be a professional. There was such a stark contrast between me and some of the other players in the way they handled themselves during a final table. Players really would get so emotional at the results of even the smallest pots. An interviewer asked me after I won “It seems like you don’t really care that much about live poker huh?” and I said “What!? I deeply care!” He genuinely thought that I didn’t really care about the final table because I wasn’t (as) emotional attached to the results of all-in’s like the others.
I actually remember thinking at the final table of a conversation we had while I was working with Jared about how I wanted to make a million dollars and was disappointed that I didn’t make it. Jared asked me whether I would be happy having a million dollars knowing that I really didn’t do enough to earn it and the answer was no. Remembering that was a great reminder that playing well at the final table was going to be more rewarding than any result that could happen. I don’t think I’ve ever executed my game plan any better. Luckily, I played well and got the bracelet, it’s funny how things work out that way.”
“He teaches you things you need to be a successful poker player”
“Jared Tendler’s coaching offers a unique opportunity to improve on some of the most difficult skill sets for a poker player to master. It is unlike, and more important than, any technical coaching you could ever receive.
He teaches you the things you need to be a successful poker player that you simply can’t learn by playing.”
