"andrew lichtenberger" Discussed on Poker With Presence

"So in my interview a couple of weeks ago with andrew. Lichtenberger aka lucky chewy. One of the things that we got into was this idea of what happens when you get so president so connected and relaxed in the flow of the game and one of the things that we have both experienced quite a bit of in our time playing poker is that when we get into that space we start to experience playing the game of poker less in terms of what we're trying to make happen and more in terms of what we are sensing actually wants to happen because when we are stuck in this place of what. I want what. I desperately need to make happen. What happens when we get in. That place is that we get stuck in a loop of agenda and projection over and over and so from there were unable to actually process all the things that are happening in the game and make really good decisions because our bias has always lead us towards preferring one thing over another without any regard for what we're actually experiencing and so when you get really present is the opposite you get to have this experience of slipping into this feeling of calm relaxed easy flow and from there. You just kinda sense. Oh this is what. I think the right thing to do is and that's kind of all you need in. That moment is to have that feeling of certainty of. I know this is the right path. And when you're in that place of presence in connection it's really easy to trust that instinct and ever since the interview came out. I've had people tell me while that concept of what wants to happen is so powerful that it really inspires me to get more into presence in connection when i'm playing poker. And as a result i am experiencing myself playing at the highest levels of ever played a winning more than i ever have before. And i'm enjoying the game far more than ever did before. And so this concept of what wants to happen is so important because it takes you out of agenda puts you into genuine curiosity if you notice. That question of what wants to happen is a question whereas this is what i want to happen is a statement and so when you shift more into the question of what wants to happen. You shift into natural curiosity that flows through your system. And when you're curious that's when the answers emerge when you're in that space the answer finds you. You don't have to go find your intuition naturally locks into the solution from place of ease and relaxation and comfort. You don't have to go searching for trying hard to make it happen. In fact the harder you try quite often the harder it is to find the answer so relaxed or nervous system create that connection and let the answer come to you and that is the benefit of what wants to happen versus making it happen. Is you want to hear. More directly from andrew lichtenberger aka lucky chewy on how he personally uses these concepts around presence and connection and how he implements them into his own poker game his own life to the tune of many many millions of dollars in his successful career at the tables. You can hear all about it from the episode that came out on august. Twenty third of this year were andrew. Nice spoke for about an hour around all the ways in which he feels that these ideas around presence and flow are so important not just at the poker table but also in the game of life as well. So if you haven't listened to that conversation yet be sure to do so otherwise take care. Enjoy your day and we'll see you on the next episode..

I don't i don't do all the work anymore that that was doing before and took about a week a plan for about a week and then i was like i can't. I can't operate like this man. I need the knowledge. I need the coach and i need to get this going back in because just just in your life for me Because of the years of like the knowledge to me is like the base. And then i can lehrer dislike cool stuff on top of that but without it. I felt like a fraud. Almost yeah i i know what you mean. I've had friends has similar experiences. And i think like having issued level of success like you're mentioning through Uncertain system of studying and an operating procedures. Econ is no like this is. This is fairly important. I just want to get back at this So i've got a lot stance stance. I have this in some capacity with all my bowl. Lot high school and Since then like i haven't really found bowling to give particularly enjoy activities then take it so seriously So yeah. I think it's just pretty natural things go that way for you. Nice all right. I wanna take you back to your blog because this is the other thing that i i really enjoyed and euro. You're writing intuition you wrote that. Intuition is quote a spontaneous understanding which pervades logic which. We've we've talked a lot about here today. It is some aspect of truth that comes to us when we need it in the way we need it. Also love the way you wrote. That and euro intuition will not always show itself in thought for think about things this way if you're in a video game as a character but also playing the video game as yourself and you wanted to share information with yourself you do it in the most practical and efficient way possible which which i imagine you're speaking of like it's not necessarily always like a thought that comes in like this is definitely the thing you need to do but more as a feeling yeah the feeling or could be like Something that happens in your environment. Something someone else says that tissue office sometime Nice and continued by saying something i find interesting is when i get an intuition that i'm going to lose a particular hand after already all in i'm not sure if my proverbial video game players alerting me ahead of time to an inevitable al com or testing as to whether or not i can shift to the future parallel reality where the outcome is. Different now updated my perspective on that. Very much To you can shift like. I have had that experience of shifting So yeah. I feel more confident about that. That inspires me to to go even deeper into this roman. I'm sure people listening. Also feel some connection some inspiration to to hear those words coming out your mouth love it.

"You know maybe it makes it less important and flake not really. It's just a different way aid. Sort of Is different aspects on better worse. Just yeah it kind of goes back to that integrity piece right like if you're you want to be a high level poker player there are certain steps you need to take on the technical side to arm yourself with the knowledge to to be able to compete and and go toe-to-toe like you said with anybody and if you skip that step and you just want to like cut to the end you're like the guy who wins the marathon by taking a taxi right and then you're going to get caught and it's not gonna. It's not gonna work out for you in the end to to skip those necessary steps. How would you approach it if you were less into technical. So if you're not in a longtime professional and and you're just somebody who took the game seriously but you don't have the time you you have job and family and you don't have time to do all the foundational salvadorian understanding theory at epa deepest deepest levels. You know some but it's not you know at that level. What would you say to those. People have of how how you can play with these things and and included without almost skipping that step. How can we kind of married altogether in a way for for somebody doesn't have that time or or is that. Is that even a reasonable thing to ask. Yeah no i think for sure. I don't think there's any Arrieta entry really. It's just about doing works for you and as broken record like it's about feeling out. I really think this is the kind of feel threatened as your experience. You a dozen and how you relate experiences it's part of the reason that There is such. I wouldn't even say there's a resistance Generals of confusion about it is because there is not. There's not like any sort of handbook or set of rules that we're given At least in the western world the public western world To navigate this sort of discussion or realm of existence. It's yeah just kind of an odd thing for people to be faced with. Because just like what's going on. I didn't see this as like a. You wasn't even on their radar. So i think just familiarising oneself with that in any sort of way is Is just kinda helpful if it's of interest and just coming from that. I'm all for anything that people are gonna have more fun playing poker with so a song to. Yeah it's definitely pretty fun. I can say that much. yeah. I haven't played much poker the year. So just been busy with this business and recently started wanting to play against so start getting back into..

"I'm i'm here and nine of spades would be great the frequency with times that this actually happened was like blown my mind. Now it's Basically i seem perspective on it. That the forceful sort of like i need this to happen is what prevents it and the softer gentler like. I'm open to this happening. Also dislike knowing that can and will happen. And if you're attuned for actually for lot better Yes you really just bring home. Yes so so. Then the question really becomes. How do you create that kind of softer gentler. Feeling of like. I don't need it. Entered be pretty sweet. If it did happen yeah. I think it's just a function of experience. If you know what works. What doesn't work You'd start around for i guess. Approach it It's it's a tricky thing to sort of explain is it's still relatively new. I guess to me Yeah i've had moments where i'm like. Okay this is a thousand million percent coming in like you just know and yet it's just like a laser adults focus knowledge thing. It's just there it just is it's as clear and sometimes you just know like yet. This just isn't coming in. Sometimes you think you know and the other thing happens so it's tricky But there's something there. There's there's something to it and i'm excited to continue to die further into this and and see where it takes me probably apart right something about it at some point navien entered the matrix part to sort of thing Because it's very intriguing. And i know. Other people have their own thoughts and suspicions about it. And i do like a putting out in like that. And so the public discourse where. It's like an talking about this like Pulse okay most people not answer and those who are will find their way to conversation and and really enjoy it. Because i imagine there are far more people who have an inkling or at least have had these experiences and it's like they couldn't explain them on the logical purely logical level but but they had that celtics missed. I just knew. And there's there's no doubt in. It's almost like there's this shame in talking about it to openly in the community which has become very technical and very very logical over the last fifteen years. Or so. And and so yeah. It's to me. It makes the game the experience of playing the game super fun interesting ads almost like a fourth dimension. Yeah i agree with you. And i think it's It's really i guess. I'm i'm really grateful that i can in a sense. Go to joe with anyone and the theoretical aspects. So it's not like i'm foregoing value that this brings the table and have the utmost respect and interest for The technical aspect of the game aso never be a my desire to in any way. Make it seem as if like this can be place it And i've i've had discussions with friends as well where they're like Like maybe this.

What would you say is is different. From maybe like the first few times. You're making big final tables in your early twenties versus kind of doing it. Now is is the experience of fun and excitement still pretty similar or or is it just different told me about that. It's surprisingly similar the amount of enjoyment that and i guess the like you mentioned early rising of the the collective energy as you approach the bigger the bigger johnson.

What if luck is just a different kind of skill and then with the multitude of follow up questions that came from the masses revealed. Very little to go with that. And so you're i wanna lay out. I've got three theories. I'm gonna lay him out and i wanna see where you land on them so i can with three possibilities of what could one is the most boring explanation. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. I i hope that's not what you mean. 'cause that's not what the people are gonna wanna hear. I don't think Of just like okay you. Though the the harder you work the better you get the more the more like you are right. So that's one to it. Which is kind of where. I landed when i read. That sentences is kind of this idea of. We don't control the momentum of the game we don't we can't control what comes but we can control how we feel or the way that we respond to the emotions that come as a result of it the way respond to the physiological sensations and and set ourselves up moving forward so no more interesting.

"I do think that You know let's face all human. Y'all have these motions these responses in. It might just be that. Some people aren't as focused on dissecting what they might mean. I think it's like Who kinda hippie stuff You know it is. It doesn't make us real So yeah i think that. Just because i guess the labels and the definitions that are associated with the responses might not be the same ones that we might generally attribute to Them would discuss stuff like this. It doesn't mean that they don't happen don't i. Guess honor them in some capacity So yeah it's it's interesting. I probably have to think more about what you said about how they connect to the technical aspects Similar were different. but yeah i guess ultimately And this sort of speaks like a larger approach to poker games in life. In general like i think the most successful people have to carve your own Sort of carved their own half and like fine. What what works for them. And when you do that like you're gonna be. You're not gonna be assured success but it's generally guns work out pretty well for you you know like you. You have something that makes sense and You know that you can sort of employ repetitively and and that still keeps it fun interesting. Yeah yeah. I love that you know the the thing that i always see that trips people up is like oh i want to be like that guy i wanna i wanna do it exactly the way he does. But you can't because you're not him and you don't have the same life experience he has and you don't have the same thoughts in constitution genetics. That he oh you've got to do it your way and i guess what you're really saying when you wanna have what he has. You want the results. That that they have in you wanna have the feeling of fulfillment that you project. That that he's got going on over there curious about you and your relation with emotions and big energy. I mean you flip for big money. I think you think you took second for like a large amount in in like was it the one drop at the world series fifty fifty k. Really yeah and so you know. That's the big energy right big pay drums law of experienced that. You know you're not used to or that. You've never had before playing for these these levels of stakes and possible accomplishment in curious how you navigate the the rising amounts of energy and emotion. That come as you go deeper and deeper into tournaments or if you're just playing you know huge cash games question I think it's something that people maybe sometimes considered deeply enough is like how you have different. The situation's can be And then on the other side of the coin. I also think it is important to remember that..

So yeah it's it's it's just like a learning process and in the the data is a lot murkier rate and there's a lot of projection stories. We can add on top to what happens later. And so i think that putting it in the category of this is incredibly valuable and there's so much there's so far that we can go with this and it might not be like what we think it is is is a really like good way. Go about it definitely In is always important to just remain open. And i would say similar to how you mentioned the desire to just Purely on the strategic aspect has not done me as well as being open devote sides i guess similarly pigeonholing life you know. This emotion means this thing. can probably have a similar effect where it's just like okay. Well this has meant. That doesn't mean that curious what you think about the players who described moore as focusing strictly on on the technical but who become very elite performers. And and it's like you said you sense that there's there's something there maybe they don't know it themselves or they don't put a lot of their attention but there's there's something there and curious do you think that maybe something where they find the connection through the technical and they and they create a similar feeling that people like you and i might create it through more body oriented practices but maybe they create that same feeling just by really getting into the numbers. Yeah i mean i. I seen a reason that wouldn't be true in some.

"Recently i i can recall I was like wow. I'm really just like making all the right. Strategic decisions like the results aren't coming in and you still again sure that's variants and short. Maybe it is. But every time i sort of forget to check in in in a way that somewhat order us I just never really seemed to find success. It's is really important for me up all those two opposite ends and yeah it's a it's like you to easier. Ask sometimes thing again just like the buttons that like make textbook cents and of course. That's going to do well but ally when you when you get deep enough into something. It just doesn't at a certain point. That i guess that's where at yeah yeah. There's a certain level of personal accountability and integrity that Once you've tasted it in your like. Yeah life's great when i'm at this level then when you kinda go below even for an instant it's like the feedback that comes back to you from the jarring. Yeah that's very well. I think there's a lot of troops that You know when you're there and you know when you're not you can't really fool yourself that much to pretend you're there when you're not So is is evelyn much less profound. I guess existence when you're Sort of not really living up to your guesses not the best fire strident. Yeah i find that in relationships really romantic relationships with really good friends. It's different because they're humans and they'll just like call you out on your bullshit right and so you'll get. That feedback dislike berry pure and clean that. You've done something out of alignment out of integrity but in poker. It's not really like that. And and burying is such a easy thing to chocolate up without going into. This will wear my at in terms of like. How am i living my life. How am i relating to my ideals of how i wanna be taken care of myself of performing of doing what needs to be done and so we can always use various if we want to and quite often it is right and it doesn't mean that there isn't more that we could be doing. I grew up For the more head centric people that going gonna be listening to this I imagine there's this one question they might want to ask about what we've been talking about in terms of scanning the body and it might look something like how do you how do you apply. Do you have. Do you have specific notes. Now where you're like. Oh if i feel this somewhere usually that means that. Like i've been off or if i feel this over here in my body this in the past has been. Do you have like kind of a a history now of things that you draw from or is that not applicable in his like the moment we try to apply and charted. We've lost we've lost the purpose of it new point i'm trying to chart it causes it to sort of rendered useless by it is pretty specific situation. You're in and i guess like the in. That comes to mind for assessment question. Is you know in this day. That there's a pattern recognition for The population tendencies. When i have seen this type of happened with this line notice showdown this sort of combination that mike frequently has i think it's somewhat similar.

"Indicator of what action is most beneficial in that specific situation. This approach becomes a fairly. Zen like experienced of precise focus and awareness of the situation at hand the mental ongoing and the bodily sensations. so y-. How's that you volving for you. These days are is that still something that you're up to and yeah what's it like in that in that vein. Yes definitely I guess for me the main benefit for that our approaches is sorta allows you to to some degree. Step outside of the All thinking process and bit more into the the fuel based approach. And you know there's there's some challenges that that there's vices such as i mentioned In law but it yeah. It's it's definitely been something that i think has been helpful for me and i do. I do still do that. definitely do feel through things and I would even say like. I'm i'm pretty open to the feelings. Sensations that i have even You know like a four hundred dollar as the coming like when i hand or when someone opens like there's so much that released sending off these signals and again i guess i just feel like you're willing to interpret that information if you like you can harsh through in some Reasonable way that is Taking i imagine that like if nothing else which i imagine is not the case but if nothing else it just gives you that bit of space to get out of your head for one little second in that can make all the difference to kind of reset the nervous system. And maybe catch yourself. Oh i was. I was deep in fear. Before i kinda went into my body but i was deepened projection. And now i'm not and maybe all choose something different. But i imagine there's there's much more to it in terms of being able to have awareness recognitions of seeing things that you weren't seeing before like about the hands like oh i completely wasn't even considering that this guy was in bathroom so the guy who opened was in the cutoff not hijacking that that just changes you know the entire calculus of the hint and so that's been my kind of experience of using my body awareness kind of scanning and checking in. Is that things come up that my brain was conveniently ignoring because i had some kind of agenda that kind of driving tour. Yeah nothing like a sort of remove you from that That moore pigeonholed approach. Can sometimes reebok. Don't realize until like you're definitely had these experiences. Where.

"Sort of Right but there's definitely there's some ability there but yeah. I guess as much as people might find it surprising to see that. Sort of divergence or apparent divergence. I find it surprising. I'm working old. Don't dive into sides of things because ultimately what i've found is that there is a synergy and like i guess the way i look it by simply as we have to two sides of our brain right and they're responsible for different mechanics that allows to get reality in Effective efficient manner. So why not in. Both of those I guess principles to ah game. That has a lot of components that are somewhat similar. So yes for me. Like when. I'm when i'm going through like decision making up the table i You know i'm always i looking at what is the theoretical knowledge from my understanding of it in the situation and then deciding okay you know given that is what i think. Baseline strategy might. I might adjust that based on You know any sort of other variable intangible or otherwise goes that sizing timing You know this players mood. You know again like feeling instead of their energy like how does this koertzen seem to be feeling or playing at this moment harley sitting in their chair and was Amount of things that can really explored the stuff. But yeah i guess to me there just to size of same coin or to have the same hole. Yeah it's interesting to me that you almost take your experiences and convert them into thought and yeah yeah and then and then go about making a conscious choice from there and i imagine everyone's experience of how they use presences is gonna be different mind definitely feels different from that. I i tend to not aim to convert into thought and and try to just let the thought appear That's kind of how i experienced personally. It's it's really cool to see how everybody does it differently. And i was reading through your your blog again last night. The enter the matrix which you wrote almost almost two years ago and i. I've read it multiple times over the years. Something that i always like to check back in on and we're like okay. Okay and i'm seeing it from a different perspective as another few months has gone by. And i really like this paragraph already is said quote at the poker table. We want understand how we should proceed in hand. Sometimes i'll hold the possibility. I'm considering in my mind before taking in action and seeing how that makes me feel physically which has at times been very helpful..

"During a hand or not during hands and i think there's a lot to gain from sort of diving into that that first part reminds me of something that happened in non poke related but i was hanging out with a group of people for a week or so and one of the guys was dutch and his english was so so it was fine. We all understood everything he was talking about but he was very insecure about it and he just kept coming back to this every meal every conversation. I'm worried that you all don't understand me and you're going to get annoyed by me because my english is poor and by the end of the week. One of the other guys like you know. You're you're making this happen. I'm getting annoyed by because you keep fixating on this. And so he kind of just became the thing. He was terrified of becoming which is annoying irritating not to be around but not because of the reason. Why is because he was fixated on on that result as a great practical example. I've definitely Seeing this happen in people's personal relationships wherever like there's so fearful of being rejected being abandoned and then it's almost like in their minds. It's a foregone conclusion that this is going to the out such that. They live their lives having already Resign themselves to this conclusion which they don't actually prefer happening Yeah it is really important to not not like that better of of you as a person they don't prefer but on some level they they clearly do. I guess so. Yeah i do think like we always do what we think is in our best interests. Even if a in observe a neutral third party would say clearly. This is not in one's best singer like there has to be some motivational mechanism by which we decide like. Yeah i've been to make this choice right hate you ever just want to be like completely unenlightened and say some asshole things to the table..

"That you can sometimes tell if it would allow you to get away with certain things with with certain people when you're really locked in hundred percent and You lot more common amongst recreational players Almost exclusively or i guess pros of like their energies just kinda weakened almost sense like Injured lag or something like sometimes you can sort of get that sense that someone is just not really bringing their a game but yet by and large i would say i don't i don't really rely on it is i guess i'm say something. Everyone sort of can be aware of. Which is your opponent Not doing everything make hands in their strategy. Difference between that and somebody that doesn't have the ability day a great strategy. Sometimes people are just not fully plugged in and doing everything they can. And i know that through my own experience. And i'm sure you hide your your fair. Share of moments verge sicom. That just wasn't my finest moment. Yeah too many account for me. This idea of presence in connection people like you and i we really deeply believe in just living in this way right and and how important it is to cultivate this feeling inside ourselves in generate this level of aliveness of happiness of connection inability to see things in be intuitive. And then it's like there's a. There's a certain moment where we take just a little too much pride in or becomes like a little bit too much part of the identity and then in that moment just kinda of snaps off in is like almost worse than if we hadn't done any of the stuff. Yeah yeah it's it's definitely a process. Where as you as you approve any starts to see. I guess what you're capable of innocence. you can let it. Overtake in some ways. The again like i mentioned earlier. I'm the process by which that point is a bit of a catch twenty two. I think but yeah i i would even say for me. It's not even so much a belief at this point. It's more just a fundamental of knowledge. Like i i know out. Or i You know you have to breathe. You don't believe you have to read it in order to let right..

"Podcast. Because today i am going to introduce my first guest interview and so today it's not going to be a short episode of me talking for a few minutes about one topic that i think is important to help you out. But you're gonna listen to me talking with a very special guest around multiple topics and so the first guests interview for the show is andrew lichtenberger aka lucky chewy a true titan in the world of poker somebody who is not only extraordinarily successful in cash games and tournaments for the last decade plus but also just as well known for his generous demeanor for his kind heart for his overall level of presence and focus in connection on and off the table so it was an honor to have him say yes to come on and be the first guest of the show and really a fun time to just chat and go all sorts of places with him around anything and everything regarding what's possible as human beings playing the game of poker and how far we can really take these ideas so hope you really enjoy. This is the type of conversation that i recommend you. Listen to again sometime again. In the future. Maybe a months down the line to see how you relate to the ideas that we talked about at a later date when you are a different version of yourself and over time i predict that if you come back to this conversation over the years once or twice a year and just check in on the ideas. I predict that you will gain a lot of new insights and see new things from the conversation that you didn't see maybe the first time in the second time partly because there's only limited amount of information and ideas we can take in at once and partly because we are ever evolving and as you continue to evolve. New nuggets of wisdom will emerge for you to see and recognize that you might not here today on for spewing so if you remember that moving forward i think that it would help you quite a bit and other.
