The Mental Game Of Poker
Mental Game
With the Olympics now over I have a very fitting guest on The Mental Game Podcast, not just because he is Brazilian but also because he is arguably one of the few professional poker players whose experience of the game mirrors that of elite athletes. Andre Akkari is a Team PokerStars Pro and WSOP Bracelet winner. He is also a megastar in his homeland of Brazil. While he is not as well known as, say, Daniel Negreanu outside of Brazil he is incredibly famous within it. How many other poker players, for example, would be asked to carry the Olympic Torch? Andre has a following and a pressure that comes with it that most poker players don't understand, which made for a great interview.
