Episode 47 – Jonathan Little on Peak Poker Performance

Ep 47 - Jonathan Little


About This Episode:

Since he first joined us in Episode 3 of The Mindset Advantage Podcast, Jonathan Little has co-written a book with TMA co-host Dr. Tricia Cardner and launched the new training site PokerCoaching.com.

Peak Poker Performance lays out a blueprint for playing your “A” game every session. Topics covered in the book include; Creating winning habits, systematizing success, and beating procrastination.

PokerCoaching.com is a training site that uses weekly quizzes to show you which areas of the game you need to work on the most. There is also an in-depth monthly homework question where Jonathan grades/discussions the answer to in a webinar.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How to actually integrate the mindset lessons we talk about into your game
  • How optimizing your environment can set you up for success before you even start playing
  • How watching TV while you play can slash your winrate
  • Why it’s important to have an overall vision of why you’re playing poker
  • How Jonathan was able to final table the WSOP Team Event with his Mom and Dad
  • The difference in mindset and strategy needed to be successful in satellites vs. regular MTTs

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.

Excellent podcast. I really enjoyed that. Jonathon Little is a very hard worker and so happy he is taking his students to a new level. It’s true a lot of poker trainers out there send you to videos and a forum. He puts a lot of time into his sites, etc. He gives 100%. Plus he is very innovative! Enjoyed your podcast very much~ Thank you!

Thanks again; gonna go get this book ASAP. Awesome points regarding goals too. Therefore, I recommend this book also on reverse-engineering goals if you happen to wanna check it out. Author was the only guy at the time (not sure if anyone has done it since) to win 400m & 200m gold medal in same Olympics but got injured in his first three years of high school for his end-of-year big track meet. Thus, he had to make goals to not get injured for his senior year.

Also great points about success built upon habits & doing all one can to prepare that A-game for battle time in any competition. Therefore, also do as much as possible to make others NOT be able to play their A-game (within etiquette, obviously – hehe).

    …Which reminds me of the legendary story of “The Tea Master & the Samurai”.It’s a very short story that you might appreciate that you can google regarding a tea master who scared the stuffing out of a samurai by the precision with which he prepared for their duel, even though he had never held a sword & won it with preparation alone.
