The need to find small edges in golf by becoming health-conscious and training in the mental game has a parallel in poker where many players have become aware of the need to be physically fit, eating healthy, and mentally powerful in order to succeed in the highly competitive poker scene. Tendler's experience in mental coaching for professional golfers was found to be perfectly applicable to poker when Dusty Schmidt, professional golfer and now professional poker player, made the connection and saw the advantage he would have in poker if he had the help of a sports psychologist as he did in golf.
After coaching over poker players and great involvement in the poker community through articles, videos, and forums, Jared Tendler joined forces with Barry Carter, poker player and journalist, to write The Mental Game of Poker. The book is divided into chapters discussing learning models, emotion, coping strategies, tilt, fear, motivation, and confidence.
Probably the most famous section of the book is Tendler's careful dissection of tilt. He divides tilt into seven types: Every reader will find more or less of themselves in each of the different varieties, but there is certainly one or more that you will find will sound exactly like you. He explains the causes of each tilt, how to manage it, and even how to use it to become a better player.
The clear and conversational tone of the book makes it really easy reading, but you will also find many instances where you will stop reading and say to yourself "wow, that makes so much sense!
Since reading through Tendler's book, I have definitely changed my approach to variance and have come to appreciate it rather than curse it. I also have a new perspective on my opponents and have a better understanding of why I need to respect the fishy players fishier than me, I mean and make them feel welcome at the table.
The mental-game skills Tendler shares in this book will definitely help you become a more well-rounded player with a deeper understanding of how to beat the game. The great news is that developing your mental game can give you a significant edge over most poker players. Even among highly successful pros there are many "mental-game fish" who haven't learned these important skills. If you want an edge on those players, this is a way to find one. Read this book. Grab a pen and a highlighter, make notes, and engage with the material.
Then read it again, and again, and again. Review what you've learned and practice the strategies. Like Tendler reminds us throughout the book, you will not master the mental game by reading The Mental Game of Poker.
This book just gives you the tools necessary to do the hard work yourself. I know I'll be thumbing through these pages often to continue to strengthen my mental game of poker. Jan 02, Eugene Tung rated it it was amazing. Reading the book will help you learn to control the various mental game aspects of your poker game better.
It's not a cure for your mental game issues but at least it teaches you to inject logic into situations where your emotions have overtaken logic. Jan 11, Lukas Lukac rated it it was amazing. Highly recommended book NOT just for poker players but for everyone. Explains how nonsense behaviour we often adopt in a situations that are completely natural and predictable due to our short term thinking. View 1 comment. Precious written book. It is worth its reputation.
I love every part of the book. I feel more "intelligent". Thank you. I will read the volume 2. Jun 07, Devon rated it it was amazing. Oct 25, Tim Brennan rated it it was amazing. A must read for any serious poker player. Gives very practical strategies to manage the mental game, which can be quite challenging.
Feb 27, Ian rated it liked it Shelves: I am not the target audience for this book, but it was an interesting look into the psychology of elite players and the mental game issues that they encounter.
A new topic had not known I am not the target audience for this book, but it was an interesting look into the psychology of elite players and the mental game issues that they encounter.
A new topic had not known about was the inch-worm strategy for improvement. In general, our performance at anything can be seen as a bell curve of results sometimes our very best, sometimes our very worst but often in-between with some people having a wide flat curve and others having a tight peak of potential outcomes.
The inchworm strategy states that when you learn new techniques and get better, your front end extends out a little further, but the back end of your worst play will stay exactly where it is unless you take action to improve your worst tendencies.
Through this action, improving play to extend the upper range, then removing the worst of your play to bring the bottom up, is how we truly improve. So, measuring results should not be from best-to-best, but comparing your old worst to your new worst, and seeing improvement on the bottom edge of your bell-curve. I'll likely need to re-read the first chapters to get this stuff to sink in a bit more.
After that, it's all poker-centric and it was hard enough to get through the first time. Feb 07, Paula rated it really liked it. I liked this book. Obviously it is written about Poker for Poker players, but I found the advice within can easily be applied to all aspects of life. I'm not a Poker player.
I had flashbacks of the movie Rounders while listening to this because that movie taught me everything I know about Poker, which isn't a lot. There were terms in this book that I didnt know what they meant but I quickly caught on. I recommend you get this book as a hardcopy rather than an audiobook because there are workshee I liked this book. I recommend you get this book as a hardcopy rather than an audiobook because there are worksheets and questionnaires to fill out.
One thing that really annoyed me with the audio was the echo, like he was too close to the microphone while reading. It wasnt there all the time, it comes and goes but its distracting. Overall, I liked the book and would recommend it. Aug 26, David Clarkson rated it really liked it Shelves: I have both read and have listened to The Mental Game of Poker as an audio-book, and have found it extremely helpful with dealing with the various mindset issues that I've encountered whilst playing an absurdly stressful game for a living.
An absolute must read for anyone who wants to take poker seriously and who feels they have leeks in their mental game. This book has so many great lessons for how to approach situations, not just in poker but in life. It got repetitive towards the end but the main lessons were great and I learned a ton from this book. Nov 16, Ryan rated it liked it. Some useful stuff but this book is designed for full time poker professionals and it's somewhat hard to adapt to a once a month game: Jun 22, Nital Jethalal rated it it was amazing.
If this book doesn't help your game, you're most likely a robot. Dec 29, Salomon rated it liked it. I liked it. Unlike most poker books that deal with stats and position, this book deals with the emotional intelligence aspect of the game. Good job. Jan 30, F Clark rated it it was ok.
I listened to this and the audio quality was terrible. Some good ideas about mental approach to the game, though. Aug 05, Rick Wilson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Better version of "Thinking in Bets". Jan 24, Rick rated it really liked it.

Enjoyed it, will go back and reread it and take some further notes. Feb 06, Anik Ajmera rated it it was amazing. Must read for any serious poker player. Mar 07, Joseph Whitt rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the things I most enjoy about the game of poker is that the skills required to play a good game of poker are not dissimilar to skills that are beneficial in life. But, for one reason or another, we all make illogical decisions and divert from what we know is solid play.
Tendler names and evaluates four mental blocks to the game: Tilt, Confidence, Motivation, and Fear. Though "tilt" is a poker term, it applies to us all Poker - good poker - requires discipline, pati One of the things I most enjoy about the game of poker is that the skills required to play a good game of poker are not dissimilar to skills that are beneficial in life. Poker - good poker - requires discipline, patience, courage, conviction, self-trust.
In short, poker requires a good mental game. Like most self-help titles, this one reeks of stating the obvious. A large portion of his basic premise is getting players to acknowledge the fundamental truths behind the game.
It should be obvious that you cannot win every hand, or think your "One time! But we do think that. I fall in that trap too.
Tendler's book does a great job of giving things names with strategies to overcome. I gave this book 4-stars because I think some of the concepts are underdeveloped. Feb 07, David Gove rated it it was amazing. Really made me think and helped me focus better.
Not just for Pokerplayers I am day trading for about a year now. I realized that my system was good but my behaviors blocked me from succeeding. This book has them all in it: Tilts, fears and confidence issues.
Nicely explained to help you relate to the situation. This is a highly underrated part of trading and I guess of Poker. A must read!
