Foosball, Poker, and Pool

Just like pool, foosball also required mental toughness.

As does poker.

As does tennis.

As does.... well, any sport!

Check out this interview/article about Billy Pappas, a Champion foosball player who is sitting well at this years WSOP (World Series of Poker) (top 20). 

He talks about mental toughness - good advice:

“Mentality is huge in foosball; that’s what takes you to the next level,” the 29-year-old said. “Skill can only take you so far. If you’re weak-minded in poker or foosball you have no hope. If you lose a pot and you go on tilt, that’s it. If you don’t go on tilt you are going to be much stronger.”

How similar foosball and pool is - mental toughness AND the low payouts:


Oh the parallels....
