How you did the first The Mental Game of Poker book come about? What motivated you to write that book? I felt very strongly that I had something unique to say about the mental game and had gotten a lot of good feedback from the videos that I had done, the questions I had answered on forums, and the players that I had coached.

So writing a book seemed like the natural next step. It took two years! Why did you decide to focus on the poker world? Call it a stroke of good luck. I played poker since I was a kid and always loved the game, but I never considered coaching poker players on the mental game until I happened to meet Dusty "Leatherass" Schmidt on the golf course one day. He always wanted to work with a sport psychologist but never had the money.

Now he did, and in he was trying to make Supernova Elite in 10 months but was struggling with huge tilt problems. He was destroying mice, and ripping his computer out of the wall. So a few months after we met he called me for help. After working with him for six month, he had tremendous success and so he offered me an opportunity to make videos for Stoxpoker and the rest is history.

After your book came out, "the zone" became something many started to talk about and seek as if it was the Holy Grail. Can you explain us what it is in few simple words? The zone is the peak of mental performance.

What the most important skill a player needs to have in order to become successful? The desire to be better and the willingness to do whatever they can to be better. You always have them.

How do you work with them to let them overcome their tilts? The key is to take tilt head on, and try to correct it in the moment that it starts. Using this logic helps to reduce tilt and correct it in the long term.

Which one do you think is the key to avoid tilting in poker? Identify the cause of tilt and solve that problem. It is simple to say, but it is much harder to do that of course. Get all the latest PokerNews updates on your social media outlets.
