Gonzaga "Zagazaur" Oliveira is a high-stakes online MTT professional. He is one of the co-founders and coach of the Portuguese MTT staking company "Polarize Poker." He has 2 SCOOP titles as well as multiple titles in other series, including Winamax Series, Powerfest, and EPT side events. Elliot and Gonzaga discuss why your poker network has such a significant impact on your success, why joining a backing group is the fastest way to move up through the ranks, and how Gonzaga and his partners engineered a positive and supportive community in their stable. In This Episode You'll Learn: [4:00] How to stay cool under pressure on final tables while your opponents are freaking out over the amount of money you’re playing for. [8:05] How playing high-stakes games before you’re ready hurts your results across all buy-ins. [9:25] Why it’s essential to surround yourself with other poker players who you like and are on the same upward journey as you. [12:30] How (and why) the Polarize Poker Team built a positive and supportive community. [16:35] Why an MTT with a small first prize can be more profitable than one with a huge one. [20:15] What you need to figure out before you decide to go pro that allows you to push through the hard times. [22:15] Why those who are using poker as a vehicle to become the best version of themselves have an advantage over those just in it for the money.
