My name is Rodrigo Río,
also known as Lithany
I’m a specialist in professional poker players in Spanish, which I’ve helped to manage their emotions, set goals, improve their concentration, recover lost motivation, learn and create healthy habits, restore confidence in their game, increase their self-esteem, improve the way in which they deal with themselves, accept mistakes, understand and manage variance and much more!
My story starts when I was little, since I always spent hours helping others whenever I wanted and I was able to, as that made me immensely happy. If someone needed a hand or a shoulder, there I was.
After wandering through life looking for my place, my wandering leads me to become a professional poker player around 2007.
I started in the group of pioneers created by Raúl Mestre, beginning to play NL 200 to later settle in NL 1000 within 1 year, and over time ending up in NL 400, which was my usual level, until the .es appeared, leaving professional poker behind in 2011 in a definitive way.
As a child with parents who were psychologists, I grew up among books and essays on psychology and philosophy. When I first started playing poker, my mind already had been trained for years, and I found it inevitable to observe patterns of behavior which many of us shared, and which were at least harmful in our careers.
I’ve to experience the rise and fall of many poker players around me, all with good skills, but as always the key difference lied in mental attitude. It was then in 2009 when I started to devote a lot of time to think about all this, and so I began expressing my opinions, as well as reading books and specializing in psychology applied to poker players.
From the beginning, I’ve been fortunate to work having the chance to talk with great poker players and friends, so I enjoyed a privileged place for practicing and learning about the environment.
It was in 2010 when one of my best friends asked me a question that would change my life:
-“Rodri, what would you do if money were no object?”
That was the turning point. The answer was simple: “Talk to people and help them.”
But, who was going to pay for it?
Having the WHAT very clear, the HOW soon came after, and I started thinking how I could add much more value to people.
Results came in very shortly after.
I continued my training reading through books, lectures, courses, articles, etc. until in 2014 I decided to become a professional Life and Personal Coach studying at IEC. I reassured myself on what I had learned and that my path was the right one, so I went on my continuous training in order to always provide the best service and thus add more value to my clients.
I’m here to help you develop your better self, to overcome the mental leaks that do not allow you to achieve your best game, to make you think, breaking down beliefs and paradigms that limit you, and to provide you with knowledge and tools. In this way, you will accomplish that those experiences are received from more empowering, realistic, and optimistic perspective, both in poker and life.
You will become a solid player, guarded against the harmful effects of a negative mindset, so you can focus both in poker and life.
