Eric Crain burst onto the poker scene when he was featured in the ESPN Coverage of the USPC in Atlantic City (video below).

His online and live MTT earnings total $1,584,960 including 3 WSOP Circuit rings, 3 WSOP final tables, and a $215 WCOOP win for $281,524.

Eric’s poker career has been the definition of swingy, and in our interview he discusses winning and losing million dollar bankrolls on multiple occasions.

He also talks about his recent switch to Daily Fantasy Sports, the mindset needed to be successful there, and preparing for two $50,000+ buy-in DFS Championship events where he will be playing for a $3 million and a $5 million first prize.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How too much positive thinking can actually stop you from hitting your goals
  • The consequences of not learning to respect the money
  • What it takes to make it as a pro today
  • When should you start working with a mental game coach?
  • Why Eric put his computer tower in a bathtub and turned on the tap
