HOW TO MAKE MORE MONEY AS A PRO POKER PLAYER NOTES
Plug up your life leaks
Eat, train, and sleep like an athlete
Understand your cycles and manage expectations
Only play against garbage players if possible
Take ego out of the equation
Don’t play above your bankroll, you can’t afford the variance.
Triple down on winning games
Get rid of losing games
Let this be your mantra and write it everywhere: I won’t let my feelings cost me money
Be process oriented instead of results oriented
Long term thinking over short term thinking
Save your money, don’t spend, but also don’t worry about investing it
Do 1 hour of study a day
Do a 1 hour gameplay audit everyday – all your money is in the mistakes
Increase your output. If your hourly rate is 100 plus, the most profitable thing you can do is work more hours.
Get your money now. From every poker player I’ve talked with the money is less and the competition is stronger. Now is the time to grind.
Allow for no distractions and disruptions of your routine
Get your time zone right — focus your 8 hours a day on the most profitable time to play (even if that means playing at night)
Get your taxes right
Put effort into finding international skill arbitrage opportunities.
Focus only on poker, your best ROI is playing more poker or studying poker, not trying to build a side business. Worry about building a business when you can’t get any more poker money.
