Mustapha Kanit on Learning Languages, Magic The Gathering & What Makes A Life Well Lived | Ep: 42
With his recorded winnings closing in on the $20 million mark, it would be easy to think Italian high roller Mustapha Kanit’s greatest skills are on the felt. However according to Kanit, it’s his natural willingness to embrace making mistakes and his drive to confront his fears that are his real super powers.
In this candid and personal interview, Mustapha tells the story of his early entry into poker and the lessons he learned along the way. In fact, his love of games started from a very young age. He recalls a memory of playing a card game with his nanny at just 3 years old and shares how those early experiences gave him an understanding of math before he even began school.
The accomplished pro goes on to talk about the key differences that create the chasm between the good and the truly great players in poker and how family, friends and love are at the foundation of a life well lived.
