First of all, Jared Tendler believes that before you start playing poker, you will need to warm up. Remember the sports warm-up before the competition, and just training, which is carried out by athletes in any sport? Well, if poker is a sport, why do we neglect the need to warm up here?

During this relaxation, you do not have to meditate on an extinct screen. Simply – analyze the past games, make notes about the players who were at the table with you today. All this is now fresh in your memory, but until the next game it will just be forgotten.
