It filled in some blanks for me--he was engaging and interesting. Would have liked to see some more live commentary.

Refreshed some points and stopped bad habit forming when playing.

Many tips on what to look for when sitting at a poker table, and how to act, etc. I could listen to Daniel talk about his passion (poker) forever!

Really enjoyed the class and am going to try and apply all of the stuff that I learned. Daniel is unreal and went into extreme detail about everything you could possibly imagine when it comes to poker.

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.

Great class and teaching style. Definitely pay for more in depth class. I am also looking for private coaching but I don't really know how that works.

Bryan I.

I don't play poker but I thought there were many, many lessons here that could be applied to any profession, or even just life in general. This was an excellent Masterclass . Thank you Mr. Negreanu for taking the time to share your wisdom.

Kara P.

I love when successful people give back to help the new ones who are growing and learning! I'm also a golfer...the best combo in life, Poker and Golf!! LOL . Hope to be sitting across from you one day, hehe!! XO

Transcript

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.
