  1. Hi dear Jonathan, you look disappointed in this video, because you did not win the big money … You wanted to be “set for life” – but it is Not the goal of the life , even when you have the family to take care of. Be joyful, enjoy your wonderful life/family/poker. I see soooo many people who has so much more money, but there is no reason/purpose for them to do anything….You are a great poker coach- the best in my opinion, thanks for everything you have done and I hope you ll do: more books,videos,audio – this is the goal to have an inspiration,to grow yourself and help others.
    I wish you love,luck,joy . Alena – this late June I had a very lucky chance to see you,and tell you how much I love everything you do!

    1. You are certainly right, but having one less problem (not having to worry about money) would be nice, in my opinion. I am glad you are enjoying my content. Thanks for the kind words.

    Jonathan. Thank you, brother, for that incredible video about busting from the main event. I give you such kudos for showing your vulnerability, your bit of confusion, and your distress about it all. I learned as much about the way you spoke of your losses, both how you understood the hands and how you felt about it all, then I have in anything else. I learned as an educator and a therapist (and is true for parents as well) a long time ago that presenting oneself as a kind of invulnerable expert is disastrous for everyone. I loved hearing that you wanted to stay away from one player or he’ll “take your chips”, and that the manics were making life difficult, and that you were down and a bit crushed from your loss. In this way you are showing how to be a professional and a real live human being, which means how to survive. Your loss was my gain brother, and I suspect true for many others. Thank you, and best of luck. Ron

  3. Thank you for sharing your Main event experience. Poker is Poker. Good luck in the coming year. I always appreciate your candor.

  4. I believe I downloaded the video. Where is it on my computer? It isn’t in the download file. I mean, I don’t have the time to watch all of it in one sitting.
    Any response will be appreciated,
    Thank you,

  5. Hey Jonathan,

    Long story short. I started playing online some 4 years ago. I do not multi-table. I moved to AC and lived and played $1/$2 NL pretty much every waking hour for for a year. I started as TAG , very tight and straight forward. My default play was if my opponent bets he/she has it. My motto was win by folding. This very disciplined style served me well enough to insure that for every upswing the downswing would was equal. I don’t want to break even.

    Then I found you thru WPT training app on Android. I absolutely love those interactive training sessions.I was so impressed that I have studied no one but you since. As a result of me doing a complete 180 from how I was playing I had to go thru some very trying times grasping hold of the absolute complexity of thought and awareness that goes into this game. I am now reading your books Secrets volume 1, Cash game/theory, and Bluff. I am still breaking even.
    I just want to be profitable. I have become a much better tournament player…no doubt about it. But I want to be able to play cash game profitably. I need help. What do you suggest?
