In the premiere episode of All In Or Knocked Out, we meet professional poker players Olivier Busquet and JC Alvarado. Olivier and JC became the talk of the poker world in late 2015 when the two agreed to a high-stakes bet not on the felt, but rather in the mixed martial arts cage. Neither man had any formal experience in MMA, but that didn’t stop them from putting up a staggering $270000 to see who would come out on top. In this first episode, we talk about Olivier’s rowdy college days and his idea to challenge the poker world to an MMA fight. We explore JC’s rough upbringing in Mexico and how his love for the martial arts blossomed. Finally, the bet comes together and the two men begin training for their imminent showdown.

My guest today on the Mental Game Podcast is the author of a book that I've recommended and referenced a lot in my career. Daniel Coyle is the author of The Talent Code, a truly fantastic book that deconstructs the idea of talent and proves that while natural talent does exist, the thing that really separates the winners and the losers is the level of deep practice they are prepared to put in. We often seek to avoid failure, but Coyle has discovered a vast amount of research that proves that only when we push ourselves to the edges of our ability are we able to develop the skill needed to be elite performers in our field.

Benjamin Reason began playing the violin at the age of 4. It wasn’t so long after that that he discovered poker, and although the latter eventually subsumed the former, he remains a music aficionado (“a recovering music snob”, as he puts it). We talk poker, coaching, staking, traveling, Buddhism, literature, teaching music, and listening to music. You can follow Benjamin on Twitter @Reasons14 and watch his instructional videos at Tournament Poker Edge.
