HOW TO GET OVER A TOUGH BREAK
So our team busted the main event of the @PokerSportsLeague in 7th place, just 3 shy of the money. We fought hard for 4 days, but came up short in the end when our Aโ™ฅ๏ธTโ™ฃ๏ธ lost to KK all in preflop, SB to Button.
.
Being so close to a top prize of $250,000, that you're already fantasizing about what you're going to do once you win - apartment in the south of France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท, anyone? - only to have it all stripped away in an instant is frustrating ๐Ÿ˜ค to say the least.
.
I'm always asked how I deal with the bad beats, ๐Ÿ˜” seemingly endless suck outs ๐Ÿ˜and shortcomings that are so frequent in poker (after all, I only win 60% of my sessions).
.
Here's what works for me. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
.
I think ๐Ÿ’ญ a quote my mentor once told me: 'energy goes where attention flows.'
.
I choose not to give energy to the loss and strive (although often come up short) to accept that it was my expectation to win that is the cause of my suffering. .
And it's in giving attention to what I don't have (the ๐Ÿ’ฐ prize) that is responsible for my anguish).
.
What if I used every loss as an opportunity to focus on all the good in my life? .
What if I looked around on my car ๐Ÿš— ride home ๐Ÿก to my 5-Star resort ๐Ÿ–and took a moment to acknowledge the harsh truth that every shack I pass houses people who live on a few $ a day, instead of bemoaning my own misfortune?
.
And what if I admitted that if my cards were merely dealt differently, I could be in their shoes, instead of the one driving by?๐Ÿค”
.
So if you're reading this far, take a second to appreciate that the $500 smartphone you're holding is worth more than most people's entire life savings ๐ŸŒŽ, so think of 3 things that 95% of the world doesn't have that we take for granted every day and stop bitching about shit that doesn't matter.
.
Here are mine:
1๏ธโƒฃ Drinking fresh water ๐Ÿ’ฆ from a bottle (sounds cliche, but you'd be surprised at what you see in India). ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ 2๏ธโƒฃ That $1,000 smartphone that I have a never ending love โค๏ธ hate ๐Ÿ’ฃrelationship with. โš–๏ธ
3๏ธโƒฃ Having access to all of human knowledge through this 'thing' called the Internet. .
Your turn.

P.S. It also doesn't hurt to get outside and do something you enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜Š

India for the @PokerSportsLeague (and a FREE GIVEAWAY!)
.
Poker has taken me a lot of places, but I never thought I'd make it to India! What a dream. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
I've been fortunate to play poker all around the world ๐ŸŒŽ but I've never seen the enthusiasm and passion for the sport as I have these past few days in India. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ .
And playing on a team ๐Ÿ‘ฅ has made the experience even more enriching, as I've developed a bond with the members as we strive toward a common goal.
.
Although there is $500,000 ๐Ÿ’ฐup for grabs, I'm personally playing for the love of the game. Still, I wanted to draw attention to this awesome inaugural event as well as give you guys a fun sweat ๐Ÿ˜€ of the action. .
I've created another giveaway. ๐Ÿ˜„
Here's what you'll win, based on what place I finish. Keep in mind there's only 12 teams, so your chances are pretty strong! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
1. Four Step Poker Video Course (all 4 Steps).
2. My best selling eBook, 'The Four Steps to Beating Anyone at Poker'
3. Preflop Mastery.
.

POKER SCENE IN INDIA! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ .
After traveling through 4 countries in 2 days (Spain, Italy, Qatar and India), I finally made it to Goa at 4:30 am last night. .
I slept a few hours, and I'm already back in action at the Deltin Royal ๐Ÿ‘‘ casino.
.
The only catch is that it's on a luxury yacht ๐Ÿšข because poker is not technically allowed in Goa. We took a 10 minute ferry โ›ด ride and boarded the ship to begin playing some poker! .
The @pokersportsleague is the first of its kind, attempting to sportily poker and capitalize on the booming ๐Ÿ’ฅ market in India. There are also cash ๐Ÿ’ฐ games here although pretty small and with high rake.
.
There's so many ambassadors they could have chose for this event and I'm so grateful to be a part of the epic launch. ๐Ÿš€ .
The event is played over 4 days and in teams. Each day features 12 hours of poker with multiple tournaments. All 12 teams with 8 players each participate in the event. I am the 'wild card' pro ambassador and was chosen to compete in the main event! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
The scoring is also unique. Winners during the first 3 days of play will receive points, which are then translated to chips on the final day. The more points your team earns, the more chips you start with on the final day. A massive $500,000 prize pool is up for grabs!
.
Lastly, the event will be streamed on the Poker Sports League YouTube and Facebook. Be sure to check back on my IG stores for updates, links and to follow the action live!
.
Onetime guys... ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

P.S. Apologies for confusion, I totally misunderstood the prize pool and structure and basically I can't win any money. I'm really sorry I can't offer the free giveaway this time, but I definitely will in the future.

CRAZIEST THING IVE DONE?

Yesterday at Noon I got a call from the Indian Poker โ™ ๏ธ League inviting me to be the ambassador for their inaugural launch. 'Of course I'll go,' I told him.
'When's the event?'
.... 'well that's the thing,' he said. 'It starts tomorrow.' ๐Ÿ˜œ
.
Aside from the fact that I'm currently in Barcelona wrapping up the @888poker_official Main Event, that I only have clothes for winter (I was in the mountains of Italy before heading to Barcelona),and my wife is in Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น, visas are required to enter India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ.
.
But when there's a will, there's a way. We made magic happen and I'm literally boarding a plane โœˆ๏ธ from Barcelona to Milan to meet the greatest wife in the world ๐ŸŒŽ @littlebitesofbeauty, sleeping in Milan for one โ˜๏ธ night flying on Qatar ๐Ÿ‡ถ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Airlines, connecting in Doha before finally arriving in Goa.
.
We land at 2:45 am, then I have customs, a taxi to the hotel and am going to try and sleep for a few hours before being at the event at Noon the SAME DAY to play some high stakes televised poker. .
Follow all the action in real time on my IG stories, and stay tuned to the gram for more live updates from the event.

HAND โœ‹๐ŸผOF THE DAY!
Before I recap an interesting hand I played during the @888poker Main in Barcelona I want to sincerely thank ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ everyone who supported me during the event.
Your positively means the world ๐ŸŒŽ to me.
.
Blinds 100/200 with 25 ante. 18,000 effective stacks.
.
UTG + 1 (TAG pro) raises to 500, CO (loose weak player) calls, I 3-bet to 2100 on the button with Aโ™ฃ๏ธAโ™ฅ๏ธ.
Both players call.
.
(...to the flop) ๐Ÿ˜‰
Pot (6,800)
Flop comes down:
Jโ™ฆ๏ธ 4โ™ฃ๏ธ 4โ™ ๏ธ
.
Both players check, I bet 2500, both of them call. ๐Ÿค”
.
Pot (14,300)
Turn 6โ™ฅ๏ธ, both players check. Before I tell you the action, take a second โณ and think about what you would have done.
.
Why?

I fucking love #mondays.
Like I seriously get pumped โœŠ for what's up this week. People always ask me about my lifestyle, about where I'm going and what I'm up to or how I live my life.
.
Here's my secret. If I'm not looking forward to Monday then it's time to pause and reflect. Your qualify of life is measured in Monday's.
.
After busting the @888poker_official Main last night, I spent 2 hours last night talking one on one with one โ˜๏ธ of my fans who approached me after the event. He came to me looking for poker advice but we soon cut through and he told me his real dream was to start a bike ๐Ÿšด business in Barcelona.
We talked shop business and marketing and poker while wandering around the city and eating gelato ๐Ÿง. It was so cool to feel like I had the opportunity to help someone else along their journey. The kid had so much talent, and I really believe his bikes ๐Ÿšด are going to be sold everywhere someday. Jon if you're reading this please don't give up man. The world ๐ŸŒŽ needs creative artists ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽค like you bro.
.
People ask why I do this, why I produce content and grind on my phone all day personally responding to 200+ comments and emails. Because if one day that kid looks back and thinks I had helped him in any way, then it'd all be worth it.
.
If there's one thing I could tell any of you looking to start up or chase something it would be to think big and don't stop for anything or anyone. This life is possible. You just have to start.
Like this post if you're with me, and tag 2 friends who need some #mondaymotivation in their life.
