This might be a shot in a dark, but I will ask you anyway. In your first video you mentioned that you had trouble putting in volume because of mental fog, etc. Correct me if I am wrong, but are you still working on that?
The reason I am asking is brcause I feel like my mental game is really sharp, but my understanding of the game is lacking. If you are interested in chatting, pm me!

Just putting my current ideas out there. I am curious about what you think. I think results give us a feeling of validation. Not in a bad way, but having results gives validation that all the hard work and time you put in was worth it. I think results are important. It is the only thing that helps you distinguish between wether or not you are being delusional or really doing the right thing. But no matter how hard it is you can't focus on it and when the results don't come I think we tend to want to change the results, rather than the process.
I am taking a break on poker, because I am focusing on school. But I find myself watching these videos and finding these mental game concepts helpful in all areas of life. Love the videos! Keep them coming!

I always thought I have a growth mindset most of the time, but I realized the intelligence label causes a fixed mindset sometimes. Especially starting something new and having to make a lot of mistakes and start over again before I can master the new concept or skill can make me feel like I am not as intelligent as I think I am. Also it is an eye opener that have a growth or fixed mindset can be different for different areas of life.

Spin and Go isn't the most talked about format on RIO, but to the people that do love this game format I would like to start a Skype group. The purpose of the group is to learn from each other obviously by discussing hands, population tendencies and talking about the game in general. Let me know if you're interested and what your thoughts are.

Hello everyone! A short introduction about myself. I am 21 years old. I started playing when I was 16 in home games of 5-10$ with friends, very casual. Online I have played for 3 years, but haven't really took a structured approach to the game. So I want to change the way I approached the game so I decided to start this blog. I will be posting my experiences,thoughts and goals while going through the journey. Maybe some of you can relate to it.
Goal: understanding Preflop ranges

I definitely agree. I haven't made a lot of money from poker, but I do feel like I have improved a lot of things you have mentioned. I think the most important change I should make right now is to get more involved in the community and other people. I still love poker and it helped me improve me on all areas in life. I think the money aspect of the game is great in the sense that it is so easy measurable. As long as you aren't angleshooting or scamming people, money is a really great indicator of success in poker and finance in general. Industries like medicine doesn't really have this clear measurable success.

Hi everyone. This is a question directed to the more older and experienced poker players out there. And it might be interesting if you're like me (young and unexperienced) and want to make as informed decision as possible. So to get to the point my question is pursuing a career in poker worth it?
I feel like to excel at something I have to give up on other options. I am going to start studying econometrics and get into finance. I am worried that playing poker might be a waste of time. And I should spend my time studying topics more related to what I want to do for the rest of career. Which I am not sure what it is yet. Doest it mean that because I don't see myself playing poker in the future, I shouldn't put as much time and energy and time into it as I should?
Any of the long time professionals got some wise advice for me? Greatly appreciated!
