Winning Mentality Follow Up: Freddy Deeb

Following up on my last post, I saw this great little piece of an interview with Freddy Deeb that adds a lot to the things I stated. You can see the video here.

I'll paraphrase Freddy:

You can be the best player in the world and not do things right and you'll never make any money. You can be an 'ok' player and do things right, and you'll make a lot of money.

1. No drinking and playing
2. You cannot play any other games besides poker.
3. Cannot play when you are mad or tired
4. Cannot play over your bankroll
5. Manage your losses when things aren't going your way.
6. Take a profit, don't be greedy.

If you do these things you will always make money. There is no such thing as the best player, on any given day the worst player can be the best player. He has the right mindset and the best player may be mad and gambling it up.

Hope that helps somebody. Thanks for reading, now get back to the tables!
