I often talk about how being a poker player is a lot like being a small business owner. You are responsible for your own hours, education, money management, risk tolerance and much more. One player who understands this comparison all too well is Marc McLaughlin.
When Marc is not playing poker he is a successful entrepreneur, but you all know him as one of this year’s November Niners. He’s going into the final table with a very healthy chip stack and shot at the world title.
As you can imagine this is a very fascinating insight into the mind of someone who is just days away from the biggest final table in poker history, we discuss:
- Why only dreaming is not a healthy way of reaching your goals and how focusing on playing one hand at a time has been key to his success.
- How he juggles business projects alongside poker.
- How his tolerance to risk has helped him in poker and business.
- Why his competitive personality has driven him throughout his career.
- Why he has been having fun during the break and working on his game on his own, rather than doing final table simulations.
I hope you enjoy the interview with Marc and wish him good luck at the final table.
