My Ten Videos at RunItOnce.com

 

Phil Galfond hired me to coach him in 2005 and we have been friends ever since. Three years ago, in 2103, Phil created RunItOnce.com, a poker-training website that instantly set a new bar for the industry. No surprise there, to anyone who knows Phil.

So when Phil informed me that RunItOnce had a Mental Game forum, and that many of the topics I teach come up there all the time, and then he asked if I would be interested in making videos for RunItOnce, I said, “Hell yes!” and he said, “Awesome!” and I said, “It’s so incredibly excellent that our careers have found this intersection point,” and he said, “I completely agree.”

Before I tell you how much fun I’ve been having using Powerpoint, Audacity, and Camtasia to weave together improvised musings and stories with little blasts of banjo in between, I should tell you that my videos are available only through RIO’s Elite Membership, which costs $100 per month.

There are tons of videos alongside mine, all geared for professional players and serious amateurs. RIO also has a $10/month membership, with access to thousands of instructional videos for lower-stake games. The videos at RunItOnce focus mostly on the betting strategy part of the game. My videos round out the menu with other topics. The titles are:

Tommy, RIO. RIO, Tommy

Prepping to Play Perfectly

Quitting

Bankroll Matters

Patience

Mum Poker, Tournament Torture, and Other Requestioned Topics

Medding

But It’s Not Gambling!

How to Grow Your Own Meditation Practice

One Breath − The Minutia of Sitting Meditation

Making these videos while working on Painless Poker has turned into a cross-pollination frenzy. I sort of knew this would happen when I said yes to Phil. I’ll think of something to say in a video because I was writing about it in PP, and then I’ll say it better in the video than I wrote it in PP, so then I have to go back and revise that part in PP, and do you think this dog will ever catch his tail?
