Poker pearl #24

How do you win poker tournaments? In fact, besides poker, what about golf or any kind of tournament?

  1. I always go back to what Mike Caro says, "Poker is not about winning pots; poker is about making good decisions."

  2. It ought to be the second theorem of poker, right after Sklanskys first.


  3. That is what I do when I win. But I don't really 'do' it, it just sort of happens to me. Not often enough, either!
