Imagine if John (an avid poker player) visits your website. You sell a book that helps him improve his poker game. He’s highly interested in what you have to offer, but he’s just not ready to purchase yet.

It was funny, when I got knocked out the producer was bumming, they were loving my character and story line and strategy. I was trying to be the biggest jerk possible without getting knocked off – they loved it.

Find your own style! Not all poker players play the same. There is tight playing which is a player that rarely bluffs, and only plays decent hands. There is an aggressive player that is constantly running you off good hands with large betting and intense behavior.
