My guest on The Mental Game of Poker Podcast is Shannon Shorr. Despite being just 28 years old, he was recently voted 7th in the Global Poker Index Player of the Decade rankings. He has over $5.4 million in live tournament winnings and nearly $2 million in online tournament winnings.
- Growing up in poker and how he stopped being arrogant on the circuit
- How handled a big downswing by not focusing on past results
- The importance of removing distractions like mobile phones in poker
- The value of being in the moment and having focus
- How he concentrates on self-improvement rather than results based goals
- How principles from sports and coaching have helped him develop as a player
Shannon really is a player who embraces the things in poker he can control and not the things he can’t. If you are looking to improve your focus in poker, he’s a great model to follow.
