Come on, help me. Answer these questions.
How many times do you make mistakes you know you wouldn’t if you were playing at your best level?
How many sessions have you started totally off and you have never recovered?
How many times you told yourself “I’ll play until I recover everything”?
How many hours have you played autopiloting?
How much do you think you have lost because of tilt?
And what’s even worse…
How many times have you hated poker?
How many times you get angry playing poker?
How many times you feel sad and helpless because of poker?
How many plans have you cancelled because you were on a downswing?
What else do you want poker to take away from you?
How much do you want to lose until you stop?
For how long do you want to continue with the same patterns?
Do you want to wake up in 6 months and realize that you have not taken any step forward? Again?
Think about the cost that staying the same has, that making the same mistakes has. It accumulates over time.
What are you waiting for?
Don’t take poker for granted, because it’s not.
You have to take action now. It’s in your hands.
“These are the things under your control, not the cards”.
Your performance, no matter what happens, even in the worst moments.
And no, nothing makes you entitled to win. You are not entitled to 3betting trash just because he did or because “you have lost so many hands”. Poker doesn’t owe you anything. You don’t deserve to win. The only thing you deserve is working on yourself and giving your maximum effort, and winning will be a consequence of that work, not the other way around.
And everything you have in life has an impact on your performance. The true professional is a professional 24h. Every decision counts.
What helps you win more money?
Feeling well or feeling bad?
What helps you feel well?
Eating healthy or fast food?
Ergo, eating greens earns you money.
Thinking positive helps you win more money.
Being happy earns you money.
And, what helps you win more money?
Preparing before the session, or not?
Reviewing your session, or not?
Studying mental game, or not?
If your opponents warmup and strive to improve, and you don’t, you have no chance, you will fall behind.
That’s why we have created Pokermind.
For those that want to bring poker to the next level.
For those that want to become true professional poker players.
For those that want to focus on playing well and starting each session at 100%.
For those that want to be a little bit better every day.
Furthermore, it’s not just what’s more profitable for you (and by a huge margin), but because it will make you feel so much better in the process and help you be more satisfied with poker and yourself.
With the Pokermind Warmup you will prepare before each session, first by being aware of your initial state and by creating separation with your regular life. It also helps you focus on the task at hand, playing poker.
Following, you will remember why you are here, grinding, so you never lose perspective and remember what truly matters. You will also set objectives for the session (specific tasks and time objectives).
You will review the most important leaks in your mental and technical game, you will inspire yourself just before starting the session to win energy and you will visualize your A-game to enter “the zone” from the first minute.
After the session, with the Cooldown, you will review everything that went wrong and that went well, with powerful questions to unmask the truth of your game an tilt. You will track external variables that could have affected your session and you will review the objectives you set in the Warmup.
You will finish the session writing your own poker journal, so you can unlock stuck emotions and empty your head from poker related thoughts, and go back to your life fresh.
With Pokermind, you also have available mental game statistics, generated from the data collected in your Warmups and Cooldowns. With these new statistics, exclusive to Pokermind, you will be able to learn more about yourself and your patterns and optimize your learning and routines.
I am 100% sure that using Pokermind regularly will have a positive impact in your poker and your life. I guarantee it.
And it only takes a few extra minutes every day.
