GTO Poker Life Mailbag

I’m finally about ready to head to Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker tomorrow and play one of my favorite events, the 3000usd PLO 6 max event 🙂 I have a journey ahead of me to get to that point 🙂 About 45 days ago I asked people to send me emails for upcoming mailbags. They could contain any feedback, questions, comments, nude pictures….anything at all. I ended up getting over 50 containing all sorts of fun thing. Gracias to everyone who took the time to send in something 🙂 I was trying to think of a GTO (Optimal) way to organize these but I think I am going to pick some funny ones, some serious ones, some weird ones and then go from there… In no particular order.     Q: Were there certain elements to your poker game that you consistently struggled with early on in your poker career, or even still to this day? If so, what were/are some of the consistent mistakes or setbacks? If not, why do you think you were able to play at a high enough level to always win/profit from the beginning? Big fan of your stuff, keep it up! ~Alex– Aspiring PLO8 player   JI: Lets start off with a more serious question. There were many many many elements I struggled with early on in my poker career and...

Discipline Ideology

(Day 7 of my 7 Day Challenge to write something and put out a video each day. I def got lazy with the video I uploaded tonight, although I put more editing into it than I did the videos where I just talk so maybe I didn’t. )   What is the purpose of this?? I have no idea….   Today was a great day in an almost fully productive standpoint.   I’ve been doing this thing lately where I start to play a session of 5/10 10/20 PLO and tell myself “OKAY AFTER 2 HOURS i WILL GO WORK ON SOMETHING ELSE!” Obviously this never works out and once again today I found myself playing for 6 hours. I ended up making a couple thousand dollars but at the same time I wish, in retrospect, I would have spent time working on other things (like writing this article). I lack discipline to such a severe degree right now on so many fronts. I’ve always lacked discipline on many poker perspectives, it was my biggest downfall for many years. It was the biggest reason why I could never reach that elusive 100k bankroll mark for so long. It is the thing that I have fixed the most in many many ways for my poker approach. But when it comes to saying “I will quit after 2 hours” I don’t...

Send me your EMAILS** for Mailbags/Feedback/Nudes

(This is #6 of my 7 article/video challenge and I keep putting these off until the last minute of the day I can stay awake. I’ve been awake for about 24 hours at this point and if you look for some tells in the video, you can def see it 🙂 BUT this is a good thing, this is a good thing, this is a good thing, this is a good thing 🙂 I am being productive and actually acting on some of the ideas I’ve had for years at this point. I do feel this ting of anxiety (I think) that is causing me to put this off and put this off until I am almost forced to do it and I like it but I also hate it. )   I will be doing some written Mailbag articles and possibly some Mailbag videos. This is also the GTO way to give me any good/bad feedback, tell me how much you like/hate/love/despise my podcasts or website, tell me how much you love/hate me, naked pictures of yourself, and really anything your heart desires to send me. If you have any question about your life, about your heart, about your soul, about your poker career, about PLO, about women, about honestly anyfuckingthing in the entire world that you really want to know exactly what I think about it, ASK. ASK....
