Not quite millionaire’s row

[ Posted February 22nd, 2010 ] by The Dean

I had an e-mail yesterday asking me about “The Jackal” and when it will be available. Well firstly I am not even sure if it ever will be although I expect the answer to that to be yes although I recall saying that last year for “The Vulture”. Funnily enough I got the inspiration for both of these systems and the PLO system that I also have planned for the back end of the year from reading and listening to Paul McKenna.

I have been trying to lose a couple of stone for years without success and following Paul’s advice on weight loss has not only helped me to lose weight but also to keep it off. But the advice struck a chord with me in how following simple steps repeatedly and without fail can achieve a huge snowball effect.

Like the reader said yesterday, playing NL50 is hardly going to make you rich but following Paul McKenna’s advice isn’t going to turn me into Mr Universe either……that is not the intention. In the same way that I am not cut out to have a body like Mr Universe, the overwhelming majority of poker players are not cut out to play high-stakes poker or play poker high enough to make them rich.

So the reader missed the point there to be honest with the greatest respect to her. The point of all this is to alter the fortunes of millions of poker players at the bottom and not to turn then into Tom Dwan or Patrick Antonius.

Success can be measured in many different ways but then again that can be said for anything. Interpretation has a huge effect in our everyday lives and poker is no different. Somebody who was losing money playing poker would look up to someone who made $10/hour at it. Someone who made $50/hour make look upon the player who was making $10/hour with contempt.

We are not talking about becoming a part of millionaire’s row here or becoming rich, we are talking about playing poker better than you did before and making more money than you did before or in most cases, making money where you were once losing it. That in itself is tremendous success and we need to start looking at poker in an entirely new way. Instead of trying to be a “professional” poker player or a “high-stakes” poker player……why not aim to be a “successful” poker player……..now you don’t need to be on Rail Heaven to achieve that do you?
