Winamax’s “Inside The Mind Of A Pro” Comes To English Fans
Winamax has finally released the first four episodes of its video series, featuring Belgian poker pro Davidi Kitai.
“Inside The Mind Of A Pro” follows Kitai’s journey in the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP). It gives viewers an insight into what’s going through a professional player’s mind when he makes decisions at the poker table.
The whole series has 30 episodes, each lasting 40 minutes. The first four are now available on the Winamax Europe YouTube channel, with English subtitles.
The series kicks off with Kitai’s moments before taking part in the prestigious festival. The Belgian pro does yoga, and bonds with his family at a rental property in Las Vegas. The series follows Kitai’s run in the $5,000 Short-Handed No Limit Hold’em event, but it also includes behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from Ivan Deyra, Pierre Calamusa, Joao Vieira, Mustapha Kanit, Aladin Reskallah and other Winamax Team Pros.
Last year, Kitai decided to go to Vegas later in the summer to focus on high stakes events. He discusses this strategy in the initial episodes. The series digs deep into the mental and emotional roller-coaster usually experienced by players as they set their sights on the highest level tournaments, with millions in prize money on the line. Viewers now get the chance to immerse themselves in the action, and also gain a deeper understanding of how the pros do their thing during major events.
Kitai became the first player from his home country to capture a WSOP gold bracelet. Throughout his career, he has won three bracelets, a WPT and EPT title, alongside several other major scores and titles. The 40-year-old failed to cash in the $5,000 buy-in event, but a few Winamax ambassadors were able to run deep in other events during the 50th WSOP.
Inside The Mind Of A Pro
Inside The Mind Of A Pro (Dans la Tête d’un Pro) has been available to French and European audiences since 2010 and 2018 respectively. The series has featured various huge festivals, like the WSOP, partypoker MILLIONS and the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Over the last 10 years, Winamax has so far released 140 episodes, featuring popular locations such as Barcelona, Cannes, the Bahamas, and Prague. The videos have been a hit to poker fans and enthusiasts, attracting tens of thousands of views, with some episodes even surpassing 1 million views. And now, Winamax is finally bringing the exciting series to English-speaking fans.
Winamax spokesperson Benjamin Gallen said it’s too early to say whether the new episodes would draw as much views as the past videos, but they are hopeful the latest season attracts a new audience.
