Ask Mental Game Coach Jared Tendler
I’m not sure how many of you know me, or are familiar with mental game coaching/poker psychology, so in talking with your faithful leader Debi (Dakota-xx), we decided the best way to introduce me to all of you is to briefly describe what I do, how it can help you, and then open up this thread to any questions you have.
As a coach to over 125 poker players from 19 countries, my work is solely focused on the mental game. Although I’m a fish in most of the games that all of you play, I understand poker players and the challenges all of you face well enough to know how to help you play better. That means not only eliminating or reducing issues like, tilt, anxiety, motivation, focus, decision making, and confidence, but also helping you increase the number of tables/hours you play, learn poker more efficiently, and consistently play in the Zone.
The key difference between what I do, and other psychological approaches you may be familiar with, is that my program draws from a wide variety of sources to create a logical and practical approach to the mental game that is exactly the same as how you’d approach learning poker. The reality is that everything in the mental game can be rational and orderly; though that’s rarely how it feels.
Drawing from my own experience as a former pro golfer, my master’s degree in psychology, 4 years of work in traditional counseling, 3 years working as a mental game coach to golfers, tennis, and football players, and now with poker players for the past 3 years, I’ve created a program not only unique to poker, but within all of sport psychology. It’s based on science, novel use of old theory, new theories I’ve created, a ton of direct experience and practical solutions.

I recently posted a guest blog on 6 Reasons Why Poker Psychology Matters in Poker (http://blog.partypoker.com/psychology/6-reasons-why-psychology-matters-in-poker.html),” that gives an overview of some of the major areas of the mental game and my take on them.
I’m happy to be here, and I look forward to answering your mental game questions in this thread.
