In order to perform at your best during online performances this May, you need to ensure you prepare well. This is why Gareth James spoke with Peak Poker Performance and Mindset coach Dr Tricia Cardner as he prepares for 2020 Spring Championship of Online Poker on PokerStars.
They talk about:
- What is making you excited for a big series?
- What can we control?
- Have your routine set ahead of time
- What three things did you do well today?
- Gratitude and working out why you’re grateful
- What little changes can you make to improve yourself tomorrow?
- Talking to your partner before the series and finding compromises
- The brain is like Velcro for the negative and Teflon for the positive
