– Liz “RikJamesB1atch” Herrera

Tilt-A-Whirl. Tilt. Steaming. Out of control, the bonkers monster. By any name, tilt is not a good thing for a poker player. And until now, it’s been mostly misunderstood. In his new book, mental game coach Jared Tendler deconstructs tilt to its vital elements and provides a recipe for combating the plague.
This is no psychobabble, this is no man sitting on a leather couch in an ivory tower spewing transcendental waves. Tendler provides real steps and real answers for poker players involved in the day to day struggle who are too often beating themselves.
"...the biggest compliment I can give it is that not only did I see myself in many of the examples but I learned useful ways of approaching issues on the poker table and off that have made a positive impact on my life.
I’ll give TMGP a big thumbs up. I think it’s one of the few books that breaks new ground in the poker genre."
Rich Prew, Blonde Poker Forum
“…The first point to note is that the detail in theories and case studies is superb. One without the other would not have worked. All theory and no application and there is merely a dry textbook. All Case Study and no theory, and the backbone to a player's potential improvement is not present. For what we have here seems to be advancement on the traditional approaches to the Psychology of Poker espoused by Schoonmaker amongst others…
…Tendler is convincing us that the Mental side of poker is as much a skill as any other facet of the game, and that factors such as tilt, fear, lack of motivation and lack of confidence are grounded in rational thought, and a player can improve their game by analysing the reasons and patterns for each.
Of course what really brings the book to life is the case studies. The testimonials to Tendler's work in the book are many and glowing…”
Verneer, Cardrunners Coach
“I've had the opportunity to read Jared Tendler's "Mental Game of Poker" and am happy that there is finally a book like this published. The book tackled issues like Tilt, Confidence, Fear, Motivation, and the models of learning.
In light of the events of April 15th, Jared published ~20 pages from his Fear chapter available for browsing. You can find it here.
The bottom line is this: Any player that hopes to have long-term success with poker needs to have this book in their library. The mental side of poker is huge, and this is a good investment in that direction. For $50 (or $40 for the next few days), it is a steal.”
