Jared Tendler. Sports Psychologist

Jared Tendler






Jared Tendler is a sports psychologist who has worked with hundreds of elite poker players, and professional athletes throughout his career.  Take a look at what Jared  has to say about head instructor, Liz Herrera.  Below are some excerpts  from a few of his interviews.


Who is the most interesting poker player that you have worked with and why?

Tough question. I’ve worked with a lot of interesting and talented players. If I had to pick, I’d say Liz “RikJamesB1atch” Herrera. The reason is, she’s the player I coached the most, and the one who rose through the ranks the most (from 3/6 to 50/100 HU). She was willing to dig into such great detail within her mental game (she did this tactically too), that if someone would have ever overheard our conversation they wouldn’t believe how nit picky and detailed we were. We’d spend an hour pouring over one flaw, covering it from all angles, so she was well prepared to take it head on. For me, it was a lot of fun to work that way because it’s something I didn’t get to do that often.


One specific example I can give is Liz “RickJamesB1atch” Herrera who was winning at 3bb at 2/4 & 3/6 HU when I first started coaching her, and now she’s winning 12bb playing as high as 50/100 – over a million hands. That’s a dramatic example, and I can’t take all the credit. She’s the one of the hardest working players I’ve worked with. Which is part of the point, with tilt issues out of the way, she was able to make the most of her hard work
