Episode 53 Simon Jonas on Finding Passion in Poker

Episode 53 - Simon Jonas


In This Week’s Episode:

In this week’s episode, Simon Jonas shares how being a poker pro has given him the freedom to travel the world and explore his passions.

You’ll hear how the praise he got from becoming a great player made him question if there was more to poker than just getting to the top, what he found after reading 120 books in 2 years, and the one thing he’s sure is more important than mastering math and theory if you want to be good at poker and actually enjoy playing.

If you’ve ever felt like you’ve lost your passion for poker or that the game wasn’t as fun as when you first started, you’ll enjoy listening to Simon’s story.

  • How to play outside your comfort zone without losing your shirt.

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.
