There are times when the games will be great, but you can't bring your A game to the table. You never want to play your F game, but if you develop a strong B game, you can profit from a number of situations that would otherwise have you spinning your wheels or retreating from battle. In the final live play episode of this series, I fire up two tables of $3/$6 on Black Chip Poker. The commentary is all live, and while my focus is less than stellar, what emerges is quite useful. I fight through the session, talk through my decisions, and finish the video with a stronger mindset than I began it with. I discuss how important it is to find better focus even when your best focus is not within your grasp. More importantly, I discuss how to do that.
