037 Olivier Busquet (Part 1) - The Mindset Advantage Podcast

Olivier “livb112” Busquet is known as one of the most successful heads up SNG players in online poker history. In recent years, he has branched out to live MTTs, where he has quickly racked up $6,857,078 in earnings. Olivier’s passion for greatness w ... read moreas sparked when he was berated for his losing HUSNG SharkScope graph early in his poker career. A desire to get that graph even quickly transformed into making the games his full-time grind and he could be found near the top of the HUSNG profit leaderboards for many years after. Olivier has been very public about his issues with tilt, most notably his epic chat blow-ups, and in this interview we take a deep dive into how he’s worked through fixing them. In this week's episode you'll learn: • Whether having a few drinks to calm your nerves helps or hurts your game? • Why you should never berate the weak players in your game, especially by pointing out their losses. • How Olivier made the shift from using “brute force” to win to gaining a deeper theoretical understanding of the game, and why everyone needs to make that change if they want to stay competitive in today’s games. • Why a serious study practice is essential if you wish to make a living at poker. • How your circle of poker friends is quickly becoming an important factor in having an edge in poker. • Why Olivier self-banned his online poker chat. • Why Olivier believes being mentally strong is a requirement to be a long-term winner.
