The Mental Game of Poker by Jared TendlerAs a professional poker player for over a decade there is not much poker literature I actually enjoy. As the most prolific tournament coach in the game today I have to do my homework. I can not tell you how many false statements I read in most texts. It bores me. Its been a while since I finished a poker book.
This was not the case with Jared Tendlers tome. While on occasion he does seem to go around in circles this is still the best book ever written on the mental aspect of poker. I read much of the book years ago, and found it was a completely new experience reading through it again. As someone who has been overly confident, in a bad run, with low self-esteem, and then finally stable and in control I found there were parts of this book for each time in my career. I just wish I had read them then! The sentences omit needless words and get to the point. There are so many gems. At times I couldnt stop highlighting.
If I could criticize anything it was the previously mentioned circular nature of the book, but as the mental game topics frequently overlap I dont know how Tendler could have avoided this (without leaving gaps in sections). To someone who powers through the book in a few days, as I did, it becomes annoying, so its best the book is used as an excellent reference text for each time in your career.
I loved the client stories for entertainment value but occasionally they came off as self-serving.
Still, a must-read for anyone who has ever struggled with the mental aspect of their poker game, which is to say its a must-read for anyone who plays poker.
