He was bullied but still won the table of $27.8 million
I've been watching the World Series Poker lately.
There was one match that really got me on the edge of my seat.
It was the most intense ALL-IN poker hand I've ever seen.
It got to the point where it was between Will Kassouf and Griffin Benger.
In short: Will Kassouf was using a bullying technique to Griffin and other poker players by ridiculing them. Griffin told Will it was “verbal abuse” and that it's not right to do.
Even though Griffin was bullied and made fun of by Will, Griffin still walked out wiping out Will and winning the table of $27.8 million.
Today I'm going to discuss some of the traits Griffin has made him a winner.
Trait #1: Griffin risked what he could afford to lose
This is crucial.
Even though Griffin had all of his chips and money at stake, he was still calm and collected.
He told Will that even if he loses, his life will go on just as it always was.
And that nothing will change for him… This means, he was willing to risk what he could afford to lose.
And when you do this, the game becomes a lot easier and stress free…
You should take this trait deeply. Whether you’re gambling
, ONLY risk what you can comfortably afford to lose.
Trait #2: Don’t be influenced by the noise
The trick when you’re risking your own money at a casino, is this…
You’re actually all alone. The decisions you make with your money are entirely up to you.
So when you’re actually sitting down at a match, take note. Don’t be influenced by outside noise, don’t be influenced by the hear-say and what your friends and family tell you.
Focus on the game and focus on your strategies and game-plan…
This way, you’ll avoid the external nonsense.
