As regular readers know, I’ve recently joined Bruce Briggs as the co-host of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast. Once in a while, on the show, we interview some of poker’s most interesting players and personalities. The first interview I joined Bruce for was with Eric Raskin, Editor of All In Magazine and author of The Moneymaker Effect. Have a listen to the interview (you can also read the transcript), which was featured on episode 215 of the podcast.
Mental game coaching is certainly a trend these days as far as improving one’s poker game. One man, Elliot Roe, has created a unique approach to assisting poker players – via hypnotherapy. We caught up with him to ask what poker hypnotherapy is all about and to hear how he’s helped scores of players improve their game. Maybe he could help you too! Read on for more details.
Here’s a great article for those readers of ours who like to focus their poker efforts online. We interviewed Will Tipton, who quite literally wrote the book (actually 2 books!) on Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold’em. Find out how practicing at this specialty can help your overall poker play, as well as plenty other great strategies and tips.
Many poker fans have probably dreamed about the chance to meet Phil Ivey, the world’s #1 poker player, and thought about what they would ask him if given the opportunity. Over the past few weeks, I’ve essentially lived that dream as I was granted the privilege of interviewing Phil for this poker blog. In this behind-the-scenes blog post, I’ll take you through the entire experience, from the outset until the interview’s publication, and share my thoughts and feelings along the way.
Phil Ivey interviews, like diamonds, are rare. The world’s #1 poker player’s time is ever so precious, so when he grants some of it to the poker media in order to give poker fans a peek at his life, it’s must-see material. Phil was gracious enough to provide full, interesting answers to all the questions we presented him with and for that we are very grateful. If there’s any poker article or poker interview that you’ll want to read and share this year, this is the one. Enjoy!
