The Mental Game Of Poker
Mental Game
My guest today on the Mental Game Podcast is a long-time client who has been phenomenal to work with because, besides being an all-around great guy, he is deeply committed to the process of mastering his craft. Niels Feijen is a professional pool player from the Netherlands. He is one of the top players in the world and his accolades include the 2008 World Straight Pool Championship, the 2014 World Nine Ball Championship and the four-time MVP for the Mosconi Cup. Pool strikes me as a game much like golf was decades ago - a physical sport that requires a lot of mental ability and yet, as Niels explains, very few professionals actually work hard on their mental game. Not only is Niels dedicated to constantly improving mentally, he works incredibly hard on every aspect of the game. And that's why he is among the best in the world.
