Mike Sexton once asked Chip Reese, "The guys you play against are tough. What separates you from them?" Chip replied, "You're right Mike. They are tough. In fact, when they play their 'A' game, I'm really no better than they are. The difference is that they also have a 'C' and 'D' game, whereas I don't. They become weak players when they steam and just about all of them do. My edge is that I don't steam." (Life's a Gamble, D&B 2016).

If you've ever wondered if the psychological aspect of poker is important, that should provide the answer. One of the greatest players of all times is attributing his success to the fact that he has better psychological control over his play than his opponents.

The good news is that, actually, there is nothing mysterious about Chip's ability. To do the same you simply have to adhere to specific strategies and guidelines. This book will tell you what they are and explain why they work. These strategies, implemented into your everyday routine, will substantially increase your performance and improve your mental state.

  • Create an unbeatable mindset
  • Pursue excellence during downswings
  • Eliminate procrastination
  • Improve your motivation
  • Master your emotions
Plus much, much more

Editorial Reviews

So often mental toughness is portrayed as an attitude, carrying the implication that weakness is a choice. Yet we are naturally predisposed to fear, risk aversion, and choosing the path of least resistance in order to survive. To truly develop the mental fortitude required to reprogram these irrational responses requires an unbiased introspective reflection very few naturally possess. Fortunately, experts such as Dr. Tricia Cardner dedicate themselves to empowering us to overcome these common mental blocks. The importance of having a mental coach when choosing a game rooted in failure as a career is as necessary as having a strength and conditioning coach as an athlete. I can't say enough positive things regarding the strides I've taken working with Dr. Cardner.
