Achieve 2014 Poker Goals with Roy Bhasin

roy_bhasinHave you set your poker goals for 2014 yet? What are you going to do to make sure they happen? Do you find yourself setting ambitious goals and abandoning them after a few weeks or months?

My guest today on the Mental Game of Poker Podcast is Roy “GodLikeRoy” Bhasin. He is a Team PokerStars Pro, four-time Supernova Elite and professional PLO cash game player. He is also a long-time client of mine and one of the clients who shared a story in The Mental Game of Poker 2. (His was about recognizing Burnout.)

Our discussion is entirely about achieving poker goals, and includes:

  • Why break even players should not go for Supernova Elite or other rakeback based goals.
  • How to stick to a plan for an entire year and prepare for obstacles.
  • How to balance grinding, working on your game and rest.
  • The impact of burnout and how Roy deals with it.
  • The value of setting a secondary poker goal to prevent you quitting at the first sign of failure.
  • How a 25 minute warm up pays dividends for both your earn rate and life in general.

If you are about to embark on a big goal in 2014 you have to listen to this show to help you avoid some of the common pitfalls poker players make when setting goals at the start of a new year.

If you want to learn more about Roy you can visit his website or follow him on Twitter: @roybhasin. Also be sure to pick up The Mental Game of Poker 2 where he is a featured client story and we also break down goal setting in much more detail.
