My guest today on The Mental Game of Poker Podcast is Jeremy Ausmus. Jeremy first came to our attention in 2012 when he made the October Nine and came in 5th for over $2 million. He since had a number of near misses in high profile events but finally took down his first bracelet last month in Paris at the WSOPE.
Jeremy has been a professional for nine years, and he is just about one of the most balanced and professional players you are likely to encounter. He really is the blueprint for having a solid mental game.
In the show we discuss:
- Why a slow and steady approach to learning has proven to be very successful in the long term for him.
- Why he is always reanalyzing his game and never wants to think he ‘knows it all’.
- How he values a strong mental game, and why he would always take a player with a solid C-game over a player who has an amazing A-game but prone to mental game leaks.
- How he works on his game away from the table and why not wanting to get caught out in tricky spots motivates him to learn.
- The mental adjustments he makes when switching between tournaments and cash games.
- How he dealt with the pressure of the Main Event final table.
