A few weeks ago I did a drawing for free public coaching sessions, and posted them publicly. Now, three weeks later, I'm following up with them to see if their poker games have improved, and what we can do to sustain positive changes going forward. Well, I recently finished the last followu…

Strap in, because it's time for coaching session #3. João is an MTT grinder whose average tourney buyin is around $150. He's a strong player online, and even took 2nd in several of this year's SCOOP events, but his primary issues were in live poker–particularly, he wanted to make the transition to playing more live tourneys. His challenges were that he got bored easily, would get anxious when his…

Yaroslav is an online HU $200NL-$1000NL grinder who wrote in telling me that he had a lot of anger and tilt issues. He said he was a pretty emotional person in his general…

Hey gang, Wanted to feature a really in-depth interview I did on Quoracast with my old friend Jeff Meyerson (also known as Crablar back in the day).

Hey gang, Today (after a brief hiatus due to illness), I bring a new video where I explore the innumeracy bias. The central question I explore is this: are our minds naturally built to think in terms of probabilities and ratios? (They're not, it turns out.)
