#56 - Max Steinberg

Updated a long time ago.

Today my guest Max Steinberg who recently finished 4th at the WSOP
main event final table. I have been fortunate enough to have long time
clients make the November Nine in each of the last two years. Last
year it was 3rd place finisher Jorryt Van Hoof, and this year it was
Max. I don’t publicly share specific details about what my clients and
I do when we work together, but Max graciously volunteered to discuss
this in depth. In particular we went into great detail about how he
overcame a perfectionism issue which could have really hurt his
performance at the final table. Max is a very talented hard working
player, he is also a very humble and open guy away from the table and
clearly the balance he has in his life has helped his poker results
and general mindset towards the game. It has been a career highlight
to share his journey towards the biggest final table in poker.
