Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness Podcast is Gareth James.
 
Gareth is the founder and head coach of the prestigious MTT Poker School, the co-host of the mindset poker podcast Poker on the Mind where he and past CPG guest Dr. Tricia Cardner (Who herself is a poker performance wizard & author who sports PHDs in both psychology & criminology) help you improve your mental game, and co-author (along with the aforementioned Dr. Tricia Cardner) of Purposeful Practice for Poker.

Gareth graduated college with a degree in music and aspirations on becoming a behind-the-scenes player in the music industry. He settled into a gig teaching music where he quickly learned his idea of helping children learn to be more musical was very, very different from public education’s.
