The Poker Mindset: Essential Attitudes for Poker Success
Original name: «The Poker Mindset: Essential Attitudes for Poker Success»
Author: Ian Taylor, Matthew Hilger
Section: Books about poker psychology
"The Poker Mindset" is a book about poker psychology that was written by two talented poker players, based on their personal experience and observation. The authors modestly call their book “the second in importance” and yielded precedency to the poker literature that teaches a correct technique of play. Its reading will be useful for players of the different levels, but before opening the book you should learn the basic rules of the game.
The players tell in their book how to overcome your own instincts, how to get inside the opponents’ heads, cope with bad beats, downswings and subsequent tilt. Besides that, such important themes as bankroll management and life outside the poker table (or how to combine such work with reality) are considered in the book “The Poker Mindset”. In the final chapter the authors try to figure out how poker can influence on the ordinary life of the player, and vice versa.

The book is quite voluminous as it covers many different useful themes for a poker player. Poker psychology is the basis for each of them.
Taylor and Hilger expressed the confidence that their book can help players to improve their poker productivity, but only if to approach to material’s study with the utmost seriousness.
