i get this question alot so id like to give you my advice on how you become a better poker player the fastest:

 

1.) signup at training sites: runitonce.com AND upswingpoker.com classes

this is an easy way to learn.not much effort required…

i used to watch videos every night.calmed me down till i fell asleep.thanks to phil galfond  here for all the lullabyes…;-)

learn,copy their style,their thinking…copy till u decide on your own style.

 

2.) find a partner or partners

a player on your level, with the motivation to learn more that u get along with …

 

if u don’t have one in mind.ask on forums.hit people up on Skype or fat your cashgame or tournament…reach out don’t be shy…

join discussion groups.post hands.get involved…

what i always enjoyed was an intense week with them where you meet you focus on learning a specific part of the game.

 

i had couple of those people in my career.and id had no chance without them…i was lucky to find igor kurganov on my first live tournament.and we made it all the way up together…creating many awesome memories…without the fun in it and just by yourself you won’t make it…

 

3.)make it not only about poker and money!

 

the goal is about you.becoming more healthy. physically, mentally ,emotionally and spiritually…

 

this is the most important because than the rest will fall in place and you will know whats your next step is just by yourself…

i tried many many methods and kept this in mind for years.kept looking inside of myself for tension. fears and insecurities…analysed them,felt them and of course struggled with them and their consequences.

but i tried to pin them down observe them.be fine with them and  not let them control and rule my life…

eventually a lot of em vanished and those i still have are under observation(attack) too…

 

 i have experienced things i would not have been able to imagine. in the inside and on the outside…there is much more to life than u believe.it can be much more enjoyable and fascinating...

 

if you for example understand that the character you have is just a creation of the mind and all influences you had.
you can choose who u want to be…any second any situation is different and might ask for a different character…its all made up in the first place.make up a new one...

 

thats just one thing to understand and implement , i could write about this on and on.but if you like to become better at poker id recommend the path of yoga and meditation towards this goal:

 

I've watched and listened to so many coaches,gurus,professors and there are many bullshitters and wanna be gurus out there.they understand some parts of life but don't see through deep enough.so they add a lot of the confusion to this topic that i see in our society.

 

 here are some that are the real deal:

 

check on youtube:

 

mooji

sadhguru

alanwatts

eckharttolle ( 2017,2018 better)

 

if you are hardcore and motivated to get to the next level quickly:

wimhofmethod

 

if thats too much effort for you try some “softer” yoga methods…

 

 

just check which one resonates with you the best…

 

if thats too spiritual for you:

watch some sam harris more western,logical…

 

 

if you follow this path it ll bust your energy level,your focus capability,your endurance,happiness,sex life,relationships…basically everything.they all go together anyways…

you ll have a blast.

 

so advice 3) in short:

you learn that wisdom and do those exercises and at the same time use poker and studying poker as a tool to test your skills.

 

good luck guys but if you do this you wont need it anymore ;)

 

your philbort!!!
