Jared Tendler Session One: Learning to Learn

Lee Davy for Bluff Europe, November 2010

“I christened my poker playing mate Terry Welsh – The Run. This is not because of his ability to run the 800m faster than Steve Cram. In fact I doubt he could even manage a 20-yard sprint without his lungs capitulating. No, the legendary Terry Welsh is called The Run because of his amazing capability of always hitting the straight.

“What have you got Terry?”

“The run.” He would say nonchalantly.

Bobby Eggs always has a King in his hand and plays it as though he has the nuts even if it is K2o. Tony “The Raincloud of Doom” Thorne always plays any card with a Queen in his hand. Eddie the Ace always has an Ace…”(Read more)

Poker News Daily, October 19th – 21st, 2010

My first on camera session was filmed while I was in Vegas this past summer for the WSOP Main Event. After recording this interview I causally offered to do a session and he said, “fine, how’s tomorrow?” Here’s the session that followed:

WPT Academy Pro-on-Pro

WTP Magazine, June 2010

“In a game where being a psychological Jedi can be the difference between winning and losing, it pays to be fully equipped with the Force when you take to the tables. Almost every major athlete in the world has used a sport psychologist in the past and with poker arguably tougher than ever, we’re now seeing more players look within themselves to gain that extra edge.” (Read more)

Client Feature in Austrailia’s WestWeekend (View PDF)
June 2010

Great article about a young player, who I really enjoyed working with. He’s a smart enthusiastic guy who has a bright future in whatever he chooses to do. One small error in there about how much I charge – the extra 0 makes it sound like I charge $1500/hour, maybe one day! The total spent was also not $10,000.

Poker Coach Jared Tendler Improves Your Bottom Line by Getting Your Head on Straight
by Barry Carter, January 2010

The very suggestion that poker was a sport ten years ago would have been laughed at, even by professional poker players. But we have come a long way since the poker boom and there are a lot of convincing arguments for poker as a sport. One of the strongest arguments comes, not from the poker community, but from the outside looking in – the world of sports psychology. (MORE)

Barry Carter, UK Pokernews, September 11, 2009

If I had told any of my friends and family that I was seeking the advice of a sports psychology expert, I think I would have been laughed at way into 2010. I am about as far removed from an athlete as it gets and I need a sports….anything about as much as I need a talent agent, a body guard or a stunt double…(MORE)

Barry Carter, UK Pokernews, September 26, 2009

Last time mental game coach Jared Tendler blew my mind by telling me that for the last few years I have been chasing something I didn’t necessarily want as a poker player, that I only really yearned for a big tournament win because I reported on so many tournaments, I thought that’s what I wanted. So now it was time to decide what I did want…(MORE)

Barry Carter, UK Pokernews, October 3, 2009

Although I was by no means crushing the games I was in, life was feeling really good under the guidance of mental game coach Jared Tendler. I was making small incremental improvements to my game each and every day and felt like I was working towards something big. My crippling fear of taking risks was completely gone…(MORE)
