Playing winning poker takes more energy than most people think. I have been an athlete the majority of my life, and I believe poker takes more continual energy than any other sport. Think of a 3-day poker tournament as running three, full length marathons back-to-back.
This is an energy request for Ashira and Martin, both have finished day 1 in separate WPT main events. Ashira is in Atlantic City at Harrah's; Martin is in Tampa, Florida, at Hard Rock.
Below you'll find a specific Energy MindShift Exercise that will aid you in sending energy their way while raising your own energy level. That's an energetic Win-Win!

A Little History
When I competed in my first WSOP main event championship in 2007 before I had my first website, I sent emails to close friends asking them to join me and
be on my my Energy Team.
It was a simple concept. When I came to their minds, just think positive thoughts. People kept asking me what they might say, so I created a body-mind exercise to help focus the energy and added some words to say. People like scripts.
During the four days I was in the main event, it astonished me how waves of energy seemed to flow over me. Despite the fact that most days we played for 15 hours, I was always energized.
I remember the last break on day 1 was at 1am Las Vegas time. As I walked around, I kept hearing people say how tired they were and how they wished this day was over. I wonder how many of those people busted out before we finished day 1.
How to do the Energy MindShift Exercise
Bring the person to mind. If you do not know the individual personally, you can simply bring their name to mind.
As you smile broadly tap gently with two fingers over your thymus (in the center of your chest, just below the soft hollow below your throat).
As you tap, say “I am thrilled and elated that…”
To aid with your focus, below are photos of both Ashira and Martin with some sample words.
