Two guys with tons of presence:
Garrett Adelstein and Dan Zack.
Both these guys are absolute killers at the table, and both have their opponents twisted in knots at the thought of having to make a tough decision against them when deep-stacked.
And they do it in completely different ways.
Garrett is physically imposing, talkative, always at the center of the table talk.
Dan has a slight build and is more reserved.
The common denominator?
Aside from being very good at poker, both these guys are also incredibly comfortable in their own skin.
There’s no pretense––no effort being wasted trying to convince other people that they’re something other than exactly who they are.
When you’ve got this part of your game down, you can now direct every ounce of energy in you toward playing your best poker––a privilege that your opponents, who are all busy trying to project a certain image to the world, will never have the capacity for.
Quite the advantage.
So, aside from working hard on your poker game, spend some time working on being comfortable playing the part of you.
Not Dan, Garrett, or anyone else out there––just you.
And it’ll be more than enough.
