This week’s guest is Patrick Howard, lead strategy developer at Poker Detox, an elite coaching and staking company for poker players, joins the show to discuss a data-driven approach to playing poker.
We’ll discuss how he got started with poker and how his background in physics helped him to develop a data-driven methodology. He will explain common patterns that he has witnessed in low- as well as high-performing poker players and how mindset comes into the picture.
[00:04] Welcome to the show…
[08:51] It’s destabilizing in the beginning when you are teaching people a data-driven approach because it’s the opposite of everything they have ever learned in their career up to that point.
[12:28] Patrick talks about patterns that he has seen in low- as well as high-performance poker players. For example, he has seen that low-performers actually focus on things that do not matter. They are constantly getting lost in really unimportant concepts and they do not focus on fundamentals.
[23:14] Patrick’s course is trying to create an environment that streamlines that path to high stakes poker and takes as much of the uncertainty out of it as possible. There are three facets to it, which Patrick explains in more detail in the podcast.
[30:32] Wrapping it up…Thanks for checking out this episode!

Hi, I'm Elliot Roe... And I Help Poker Players Squeeze Every Ounce Of EV From Their Poker Skills and Abilities. Over 7500 poker players have downloaded my Mindset MP3s to boost their focus on the table and to relax and recover post-session. I have personally worked with hundreds more on mastering their emotions and the tabling and developing the “Pro-Athlete Mindset” needed to be successful into today’s games. Creating a strong poker mindset has been the “secret weapon” of the high stakes elite for years now, and I started this site to bring that edge to any player willing to work on that area of their game.
