    Episode 81 - Missing Poker and Listener Hand Analysis

    Episode 81 - Missing Poker and Listener Hand Analysis

    Welcome to Episode 81! MTT Coach Gareth James and Peak Performance Mindset Coach & Educator Dr. Tricia Cardner are back discussing all things poker strategy & mindset! The start of the episode finds them discussing missing poker and how it will be nice to get back to normal. They also chatted a bit about Nassim Taleb’s classic book Fooled by Randomness & how the mind loves looking for patterns even where none exist.

    Then they turned their attention to a question sent in by a listener regarding how he played a turn and river. Gareth pointed out that it is key for players to think about which turn (and river) cards are good for us, which are bad for us and how the equities change as each card comes out. This can & should guide our decision making on turns and rivers.

    Gareth also noted that it is critical that we not forget the action that has occurred pre-flop and on the flop as these actions provide clues as to our opponent’s range. Finally, you need to reflect on what you are trying to achieve with each bet.

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.
