How my poker adventure started.

Sky TV sports presenter Tony Wrighton visited me in Portugal to talk about my poker adventure, and a lot of other things too. It was not all work though. We managed some golf, beach walks, and power meditations. All great ways to relax and hopefully find some inspiration.

As well as being a TV presenter and the founder of Zestology Tony is also an NLP Master practitioner and trainer and so it is not surprising that our conversation took many fascinating twists and turns. The result is a podcast that is full of practical tips that everybody can use. Here is Tony’s introduction.

“Today’s podcast is Dr. Steve and me sitting in Steve’s garden in Portugal, and Steve tells me a few good stories about millionaire poker players, and how we can learn from them to make our own luck. Specifically, the incredible story of Chris Moorman winning his first TV title, and how he did it.

In other words. Become a millionaire poker player* (*maybe). Doc Steve is one of my all-time most requested guests. So he’s back!”
