Without a doubt, my most challenging experience in poker was really at the outset. You know, in Toronto, I was a big fish in a little pond, and I was able to pound people into submission, and I was a bull in a china shop. I took that sort of mentality to Las Vegas, and I was the hometown hero that went home with his tail between his legs. And I'd go back home and rebuild, and come back to Las Vegas, get spanked again, get beaten up. And there was many nights where I walked home from the Mirage rather than spend the $5 on a cab-- because I didn't exactly have it-- to the Budget Suites, which was basically like a motel I was staying at, and really kind of getting deeper, and to saying to myself, like, what am I really going to do with my life? Am I going to be able to make it? How many times can I fail before I succeed? What is it going to take? And all those moments, those weak moments, or those moments where I was in a breakdown, led to me having major breakthroughs in terms of what was going to take for me to be successful. And I'm thankful for every mistake I've made, because I see mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow. So my definition of success is probably a lot different than you may expect. I think of success from the perspective of integrity. And what I mean by that is, for me, success is living a life where what I say I'm going to do, I actually do. So if I say that I'm going to be on time, I'm there on time. If I say that I'm going to not drink before a tournament, and not be social, and get eight hours of sleep, and I do that, that's success. If I say that I'm going to put in the hard work, and learn how to play the game better, and do that, that's success. That allows me to live a life where I'm less focused on the results, and I let the results come on the back of my hard work. So I don't necessarily focus on specific titles or amounts of money that I need to have in order for me to feel like I have a successful life. For me, what's most important is living in integrity, and being my word to others and myself. It has been an absolute pleasure creating this course for you guys. And I want to thank you for tuning in and taking in all the concepts. I know sometimes it may be intimidating, but I'm just thankful that I had the opportunity to share a game that I love. And I hope that the better prepared you are to play this game at a high level, the more you enjoy it as well.

Very good general overview. Opened my mind to concepts I need to research a bit more in depth. Look forward to applying some of these concepts in house games with coworkers.

I was able to make it in the money in a local tournament after watching the class. Great class

Really liking the content and Daniel is a fantastic instructor, with a lot of work I may one day be able to play against him across the felt.

Fantastic course for anyone looking to learn from a legend.

Daniel, I just want to thank you for everything you put together here! Since I have taken this Masterclass I have entered 6 tournaments and I have Final Tabled 5 out of the 6! Amazing class and I support all your views as well! PS Vegan lifestyle! Thank you and everyone who wants to take poker seriously should get this class!

Daniel, thank you so much for this class! It has changed many ways I think about poker, reaffirmed many ways I wondered about the game. I will be watching this class many more times and I know I'll learn something different each time.

I’ve read & watched most of your material, & I have always enjoyed your stuff! You are as good of a teacher & mentor of the game as you are a player.

I enjoyed listening through all these 30+ lessons. As a self defined advanced recreational player, many of the concepts I was already aware of, but there were some new tips along the way to enhance my game further. The only suggestion I would make for Daniel and the crew behind the scenes of this operation: Have the master themselves drop by occasionally to the various lesson comment section and reply to a comment or question here and there. Not everyone, but some of the better or insightful ones. Otherwise a very good high end professional looking series

One can set aside everything in these 37 installments having to do with the art and science of poker if you only learn that "Do what you say you will do" should be a central principle for your life. Daniel's explanation that this applies to commitments you make to yourself, as well as those made to those around you, is a critical point. It is damn tough to do and you will fail (as we all do in poker). But as Daniel says, more than once over the course of this class, look at your failures, learn from them and recommit to keeping your word impeccable, especially to yourself. Thanks Daniel, well done!

The best part of this class is that he confirmed that a lot of things that I already do are correct. It's always a good thing to be able to pick the brain of a professional no matter what field it is. And to be able to pick the brain of one of the all-time best in his field is really priceless. Especially since we can watch it time and time again. Thank you, Daniel.
