Today I’m going to be speaking with someone who just might be the happiest and most optimistic guest I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with on the show so far, Mr. Sky Matsuhashi.

For many of you, Sky probably needs no introduction. Although he doesn’t classify himself as a professional poker player, Sky has been involved with the game in one way or another for about the last 16 years as a player, coach, author, and prolific content creator.

Sky’s career in the world of poker began when he decided to put up a blog called

Over the last few years, that blog has grown from a small outlet for his thoughts into the thriving centerpiece of a small empire built on teaching others the art of how to truly study poker and improve their own game.

Sky regularly produces the SmartPokerStudy podcast which now boasts more than 260 episodes. He’s given countless webinars and has put together stand-alone courses designed to help micro and small stakes players take their game to the next level.

He’s also developed “5 minute poker study”, a program designed to give you real training and results in quick, digestible, 5 minute bites.

He runs, an ongoing coaching program that is in a constant state of growth and development as Sky works tirelessly to ensure his students are always getting 100% of the value he’s capable of producing.

Sky is also the author of How To Study Poker: Volumes 1 & 2 as well as Preflop Online Poker.

If you’ve ever found yourself trying to -quote-unquote- “study” a poker concept only to find that you didn’t really absorb much of it when you returned to the tables, Sky’s the man you want to talk to.

During our conversation, he reveals some brilliant insights into how he looks at the game, what should be going on in your minds on and off the felt as you play, and how to create the habits that will ultimately lead you to more success.

Before we get started, let me also tip you off that you should pay particular attention during this episode. Not only did Sky provide some great information during our talk, but he also created a special video treat exclusively for Chasing Poker Greatness listeners.
