After nearly 2 years of work, I’m excited to announce that I’ll start taking pre-orders on the book next week. The Mental Game of Poker will sell for $49.95, but you can take advantage of a 20% discount during the two week pre-sale (released the week of April 25th) and be the first to have it in your hands.
The book is 264 pages of the best instruction I’ve come up with over the last 3+ years in poker. My goal when I set out to write it was to create a resource that would give players the ability to make dramatic improvements in their game without ever talking to me. I won’t know for several months whether the book will deliver on that promise, but I’m really proud of what I’ve written.
It’s comprehensive while at the same time being really straightforward and user friendly. It demystifies a lot of common wisdom that doesn’t produce the type of lasting solutions that you need, and provides a step-by-step strategy to improving the most important mental game issues out there: tilt, fear, motivation, and confidence.
There’s a lot about the book that I’m excited about, a big one, is who else you’re going to hear from. I’m really fortunate to have great people as clients and these nine players bring the material to life by sharing their story and what they learned as a client:
Dusty “Leatherass” Schmidt, Team PokerStars Online
Niman “Samoleus” Kenkre, BlueFire Poker Coach
Liz “RikJamesB1atch” Herrera, Heads Up NL up to $50/$100
Matt “mbolt1” Bolt, DragTheBar Coach
Jordan “iMsoLucky0” Morgan, Full Tilt Poker Red Pro
Mike “Syous” Song, DeucesCracked Coach, High Stakes Heads Up NL
Pascal “Stake Monster” Tremblay, Cardrunners Coach
Sean Gibson, Poker News Daily
Barry Carter, Poker Journalist and co-author
More details, including excerpts of the book will be available next week. In the meantime, check out the Table of Contents.
TMGP is written in a way that you can either read it straight through, or jump around to sections that are linked (pages numbers provided) and choose your own adventure in a sense. It’s a resource that will give you the information to bring your mental game up to the same level as your poker game. For some of you, that’s a pretty scary proposition. Just imagine what your game would be like if your mental game was just as strong as your skills at the table. The book will pay for itself in no time.
The countdown is on!
Edit: A number of people have been asking me where they will be able to purchase the book. I’ve built a website for it, that’s currently in final stages of being tested. I’ll post it once it goes live.
