Stephen and I talked about what I wanted to achieve in life both in and outside of poker. He mentioned that I needed to find ‘the zone’ while playing and if I could do that then good things would happen for me. The key to finding ‘the zone’ was to be solely focused on poker whilst playing but equally important was also to be working on myself as a person outside of poker and to set myself targets consistently.
“It is worth noting that I went on to win my first ever live major at the WPT just weeks after my final meeting with Stephen” – Chris Moorman

My client Chris Moorman is a happy man with his first bracelet. It did not come as a complete surprise to either of us. He deserved it 100%.
This is how he prepares for a big one. “Also, whenever I have time, I like to have a call with my mental coach Stephen Simpson.”
