A NEW ERA OF POKER IS DAWNING...
As a poker player, you have a great deal in common with today’s professional athletes: You've dedicated serious time to learning the fundamentals; you practice regularly; you strive to improve by analyzing every move; you use psychology to hone your winning edge—and, if you don't take care of yourself both mentally and physically, you’ll lose your winning edge...
CAN YOU COMPETE WITH THE BEST?
Learning to treat poker like the competitive endeavor it is—and yourself like the sportsperson you are—will give you the best chance at success every time you play. Packed with solid research and feedback from top pros, PEAK PERFORMANCE POKER will show you how to prepare your body and your mind to achieve optimal results during that next big tournament or cash game.
