Carlos Welch

Carlos Welch has been playing and studying the game of poker for over ten years.

He is a writer for various poker media outlets and has been a frequent guest on several poker podcasts.

He plays small to mid-stakes tournaments and is well known for his extreme frugality – most notably his decision to live in a van.

Although he travels the world playing poker, he is not quite a professional poker player. He considers himself more of a professional poker student.

You can keep up as he lives his dream by watching his Twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/carloswelch and following him on Twitter at @HipHop101Trivia.

This week you’ll learn:

  • The two activities you can use to boost your happiness and reduce depression
  • How Carlos got a room for just $350 per month in Vegas for the WSOP
  • How your overall life happiness should be factored into the games you play
  • How to be a successful player without becoming jaded
  • Why the “expense” side of poker profitability is just as important as “revenue”

About the Author Elliot Roe

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.
