    The start of the episode finds Gareth talking about all of the recent online poker series he has been participating in which includes SCOOP.

    One of the main lessons that they discussed was the effect of results on confidence. It’s really important that you not let one series make or break you.

    Episode 73 - Making the Most of the Current Online Landscape

    Episode 73 - Making the Most of the Current Online Landscape

    Welcome to Episode 73! MTT Coach Gareth James and Peak Performance Coach & Educator Dr. Tricia Cardner are back discussing all things poker strategy & mindset! The start of the episode finds Gareth & Tricia discussing how they are adapting to staying at home during the Covid-19 shutdown. After discussing the shows they are binge watching, Tricia went on a rant about WSOP.com & the dormancy fees they are charging during the quarantine.

    The main part of the episode was spent discussing how to navigate the online world in such a way as to maximize ROI & minimize variance during the shutdown. Many of the online festivals have been extended and the prize pools are bloated, so this is an excellent opportunity to take advantage. Gareth rightly mentioned that the way to overcome variance is to put in more volume.

    Tricia also mentioned that she has added several new videos to her YouTube channel, so check those out at: https://www.youtube.com/c/DrTriciaCardner

    Episode 72 - Covid-19 and its Effects On The Poker World (Plus Some MTT Strategy!)

    Welcome to Episode 72! MTT Coach Gareth James and Peak Performance Coach & Educator Dr. Tricia Cardner are back discussing all things poker strategy & mindset! The start of the episode finds Gareth & Tricia discussing the effects of Covid-19 on the poker world.

    The main part of the episode was spent discussing a hand history received on how to effectively play 76o from the BB versus the HJ. In this case, HJ chose unusual bet sizes on at least the flop and the river. Gareth & Tricia break down the action on all of the streets and discuss potential lines and thought processes that can be used to figure out the best move.

    Of particular interest was the river action and Gareth pointed out the merits of leading the river as the out of position player.

Episode 44

I like the guess and analysis on why Daniel N cared about the hockey game. It's not self sabotage, it's not that he was broken down from the day before; it's obviously that he is Canadian and hockey is religion up there.

This is the only poker podcast I'm aware of that combines technical skills and mindset skills. Every podcast provides a new concept in one of these two areas. I have recommended to all my poker friends. Thanks Gareth and Tricia!

Fantastic stuff

Fantastic stuff. I’m already a big fan of Dr Tricia, but Gareth James is growing on me as I listen to each episode!! They’re both well informed, fun to listen to, and they have awesome guests on the show. They’ve earned themselves 5 stars and a subscription from me.
