Hey High Rollers, how are ya doing?  The snow’s flying where I’m at….gonna be a white Christmas here…Hope the Reindeer’s dress warm….today’s chat brought to you by our good friends atVegasTopDogs.com….Tony K and company, they  pick winners folks…

Alright, I want to read you a few quotes…”I’m not a prodigy, I just work at every poker hand.” Phil Ivey.  “Put yourself in a position to get lucky.”  Tom McEvoy, the 1983 world champ and former guest of this show.  “Patience is the companion of wisdom.”  Saint Augustine.  And, “No Limit Hold’em is 70% psychological, 20% mathematical and 10% magical,” that quote comes to us from our guest today, author of a fantastic new book called Poker Samadhi, designed to help you reach a new level of consciousness at the poker table….its all about divine energy and spirit baby.  She’s the founder and chief guru of Poker Samadhi, located in Las Vegas Nevada….Danielle Striker our guest today…Danielle, good to have you, thanks for being a High Roller…

Thank-you so much for the book…I just love it, keep it at my bedside.  Now,  I know a little bit about your story, a New Yorker, a Broadway dancer, motorcycle nut and now poker crazy…you had a very serious motorbike accident, can you tells us about that…

You write, “and then I had an epiphany, I realized the game of poker was a symbolic representation of life.  The way people play poker and live their lives are the same.”  I love that line…can you elaborate for us?  

Poker Samadhi, it’s a way of life for you isn’t it?

In the dedication, you say that your dad taught you that “You are where your attention is.”  That’s dynamite stuff. 

I listened to a Phil Hellmuth interview years ago, where he said its absolutely vital to be in the right head-space when you play…citing an example of How an alcoholic, deep down, may feel like he/or/she deserves to lose and therefore does…poker players put in crazy hours…crazy things happen, you make take a bad beat, the guy beside you may smell bad, talk too much…and you’re playing for cash, in some cases for a living and you need to keep your head right?  you need to think straight..with so many variables that can be tough?

70% psychological, 20% mathematical, and 10 per cent magical?

You have a close relationship with former guest of the show Tom McEvoy, world champion, author, very impressive man…how did that relationship develop?
What has he taught you about the game of poker…aside from basic strategy…the life part of it?

You guys have some big plans in 2004?

What are some common mistakes you think people make at the poker table because they’re not fully in tune with themselves…bankroll management, I assume is one of them?

In the book, you have quoted some of the games very best, some of them legends..Stu Ungar, show me a good loser and i’ll show you a loser…what was the process in selecting these quotes, was there a criteria?

The interview is slated for later today…stay tuned, Danielle Striker, a good friend of the show, on HRR>
