Dusty has recently started a podcast that’s getting some solid reviews. He was good enough to have me on as his first guest. It’s about a 45 minute show and we go into depth about some important topic, see below for more details:
From Dusty’s blog
On our most recent LeatherPod, we talk with mental game coach Jared Tendler, author of the much-anticipated new book, “The Mental Game of Poker.” A brilliant guy, he helps answer many of the burning between-the-ears questions listeners have been sending me since the inception of the podcast.
Early in his career, Jared worked with golfers, so he’s perfectly qualified to comment on the psychology we saw on stage at this week’s Masters and relate what poker players can learn from it.
From there we talk about these topics:
*Distinguishing variance from poor performance
*The characteristics all winning poker players have, and what all losing players have in common.
*Developing the winning skill
*Rationalizing variance, particularly as stakes go up and dollars increase.
*Making the decision to play through or stop when you’ve got something less than your A Game working
*Compartmentalizing a losing day so you can enjoy the rest of your life.
