If there's one thing I would change about The Mental Game of Poker 1 it would be to include more examples from the world of live poker. I tried to remedy that in The Mental Game of Poker 2, and if you want more proof that the mental game is just as, if not more, relevant to live poker look no further than today's guest on my podcast. Bart Hanson is a live cash game player who is best known for his commentary on 'Live at the Bike,' as well as having one of the most critically acclaimed strategy podcasts. His site, www.seatopenpoker.net, is on of the few training sites to concentrate on live play. Live poker does not get anywhere near enough coverage on training sites, but Bart is almost single handedly redresses that balance and proves that live players think as deeply about the game as their online counterparts. During our chat we talk about the importance of patience in live poker, some of the biggest errors online players make when the come to brick and mortar card rooms, how to combat distractions, spotting signs of tilt in others, being results-oriented, and much more. If you're an online player who assumes they can just crush the live game, think again. If you're a live player looking to take your game to the next level, Bart is your man.
