Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wow. Haseeb has written an amazing and ground-breaking book. There'struly nothing else like it. An absolute requirement for anyone seriousabout poker."
--David Williams, Team PokerStars pro, 2010 WPT World Champion


"Philosophy of Pokerallows you to delve into the mind of one of poker's greatest thinkers."
--Sorel Mizzi a.k.a."Imper1um" & "Zangbezan24", high-stakes poker pro and 2010 BLUFF Player ofthe Year
 
"This book is in aclass of its own. I'd honestly prefer if it wasn't released. "
--Asad Goodarzy a.k.a."Glitteringprizes", high-stakes poker pro and BlueFirePoker Instructor

"This book is a must-read for everyone who is interested in poker and wants to remain on top of their game, especially for gaining a mental edge over their competitors."
--Johannes Strasseman, high-stakes poker pro and founder of cardcoaches.com

"Great poker players are seldom great writers. Amongst the literature, Haseeb's book is uniquely attentive to the linguistic aspects of poker, to the subtexts of the game, and also to its beauty. No book I have previously encountered takes the same approach, and it is this which makes the writing of interest to poker players of any caliber, and other game players alike."
--Peter Leggatt, critic and essayist for the Financial Times

 "Haseeb's book will help poker players of all levels improve their theoretical understanding of poker and the mental game. Haseeb is brutally honest about the deliberate practice and intelligence it takes to win in today's game, and yet I still found myself inspired upon finishing it."
--Jennifer Shahade, author, journalist for PokerStars

About the Author

Haseeb Qureshi started playing poker professionally when he was 16 years old. He soon became a world-class high-stakes professional online poker player, sponsored by Full Tilt Poker, known around the world as "DogIsHead." At age 21, he became entangled in the Girah Scandal, in which his protégé, Jose "Girah" Macedo, was caught cheating. Soon afterward, Haseeb retired from poker. After extensive traveling, contemplating and writing about his past, Haseeb returned home to be with family and complete his education. He spent the next two years volunteering, meditating, and writing about poker and philosophy as he completed his B.A. at the University of Texas at Austin. In December 2013, Haseeb decided to give away his poker earnings and start over from scratch. He donated $75,000 to charity and gave the remainder of his assets to his family. At the same time, he published his first book, How to Be a Poker Player: The Philosophy of Poker. Haseeb resides in Austin, Texas, where he writes and continues to work with poker players as a mind coach. His coaching focuses on how to control emotions, manage one's mindset, and eliminate tilt to increase one's earnings. You can contact Haseeb and follow him at his website and blog, haseebq.com.
