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.

Stop me if you’ve heard this story before: Loads of talent, unhappy career, wants more autonomy in their professional life…

Bingo, bango, bongo a professional poker player is born.

In today’s episode you’re going to learn:

The exact moment Gareth knew he was going to become a professional poker player.

The behind-the-scenes story of how Gareth landed the gig training Berkey for the massive $300k buy-in High Roller Bowl final table in 2016.

The form of learning Gareth believes is rocket fuel to your poker game.

And much, MUCH more!
