Brian Rast – Tearing People Down, Lack Of Food All Part Of Choice Center Process

Get behind the curtain info on high-stakes poker's latest self-help fad.

From the halls of the Rio at the 2014 World Series of Poker, Bluff Magazine's Thomas Keeling talks candidly with high-stakes poker pro Brian Rast about self-improvement and the sometimes controversial Choice Center.

Brian Rast, who currently sits 2nd in chips in the Event #2 of the WSOP, takes a few minutes out to talk with Thomas Keeling from Bluff Magazine about his strategy for having a more balanced year at the World Series. Rast decided to decrease his stress by not having a bracelet bet in place and basically only play events when he really feels like it.

He also talks about his experience with the self-help institute Choice Center. Choice Center has been getting a lot of credit in poker, specifically from Daniel Negreanu, with both improving once’s quality of life and as a result…results.

Rast isn’t so fast to hop on the Choice Center bandwagon and doesn’t exactly think that it’s “self-replicating virus” like style of aggressive recruitment and break-you-down to build-you-up style of assistance is necessarily the best thing for a person. It’s an interesting insight into how people can help themselves and an insider look into Choice.
