One of my poker goals for 2014 was to have a monster win. Just under the wire, with two weeks to go in the year, I managed to pull it off. The amount of money I won is actually the least important part of having accomplished the goal. Last night, I experienced the confluence of “run good” perfectly aligned with my A+ game and a poker mindset that allowed me to be fully prepared to make the most of my opportunities to win. Here’s the story of how my monster poker session happened – I think it’s something that both recreational and professional poker players can learn from.
