“It is the only book I recommend

2012 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Merson

“My buddy Tony Gregg (The 2013 One Drop Champion) told me I should read The Mental Game of Poker on audio book, I downloaded it in the middle of June 2012 and listened to it every night over the course of the WSOP. I couldn’t endorse it more, I’ve done interviews where people ask me what book I would recommend and that is the only book I would recommend. I couldn’t agree with the philosophy of the book more.”

“My mental game is tough, I don’t tilt any more”

2013 WSOP bracelet winner Justin Oliver

(Immediately after winning the $2,500 Four Max event.)

“My mental game is tough, and I’ll tell you why. My mental game used to be terrible, I used to tilt, I used to go insane, and this is going to be a plug for Jared Tendler, he wrote a book called The Mental Game of Poker and I don’t tilt any more.”

“The best poker book ever written, and it’s not even close.”

Lex Veldhuis, PokerStars Team Pro

“I really can’t imagine any poker player who wouldn’t benefit from reading this book.”

2013 WSOP Ladies champion and Supernova Elite Kristen Bricknell
“The mental game is something I know I overlooked for so long, as have most of my other poker player friends, which really doesn’t make sense. As I learned from the beginning of the book- I was/am a huge mental game fish, and if you haven’t read this book, you probably are too.
Jared is fantastic. In the middle of reading the book, I took a look at his website and noticed that he was available for personal coaching sessions. I did some research, and after reading and hearing only good things about him, I decided to go ahead and get working with Jared personally. I’ve had two sessions with him so far and I am beyond impressed. Get this book!


“I’m able to play very long sessions virtually tilt free”

Dusty “Leatherass” Schmidt

3ac1453b57“Jared has been a tremendous help to my game. For those that read my blog you are probably sick of hearing his name because I have mentioned our work together so many times. The thing is though, he has just been such an enormous help to me. I used to have to end most of my sessions early because I would just play and play until I would go on tilt and that would be the end of it.

Now I am able to play VERY long sessions while mass multi-tabling and play virtually tilt free and can honestly say I now bring my A game to the table nearly every time I play poker.

“Jared helped me figure out how to be a professional”

Max Steinberg, 2012 WSOP bracelet winner

poker_steinberg_sy_600“I give Jared a lot of credit for helping me figure out how to be a professional. There was such a stark contrast between me and some of the other players in the way they handled themselves during a final table. Players really would get so emotional at the results of even the smallest pots. An interviewer asked me after I won “It seems like you don’t really care that much about live poker huh?” and I said “What!? I deeply care!” He genuinely thought that I didn’t really care about the final table because I wasn’t (as) emotional attached to the results of all-in’s like the others.

I actually remember thinking at the final table of a conversation we had while I was working with Jared about how I wanted to make a million dollars and was disappointed that I didn’t make it. Jared asked me whether I would be happy having a million dollars knowing that I really didn’t do enough to earn it and the answer was no. Remembering that was a great reminder that playing well at the final table was going to be more rewarding than any result that could happen. I don’t think I’ve ever executed my game plan any better. Luckily, I played well and got the bracelet, it’s funny how things work out that way.”

“He teaches you things you need to be a successful poker player”

Ben “NeverScaredB” Wilinofsky,  EPT Berlin champion

Gewinner_Ben_Wilinofsky_2“Jared Tendler’s coaching offers a unique opportunity to improve on some of the most difficult skill sets for a poker player to master. It is unlike, and more important than, any technical coaching you could ever receive.

He teaches you the things you need to be a successful poker player that you simply can’t learn by playing.”


“I’m almost at the point where I don’t tilt anymore.”

Ben ‘Ben86’ Tollerene, High Stakes cash game professional

IMG5480-e1346699711912-300x300“I sometimes felt that I didn’t get a fair reputation when I read about me in the reviews. Now I don’t care anymore what people say or write about me. That’s why some of the pressure is gone.

I also slowly built up my tolerance towards variance. I’m almost at the point where I don’t tilt anymore.”
