Poker pearl #33

This from the Dec. 16 issue of Card Player magazine (Alan Schoonmaker's column):

If you keep whining about your bad luck, you will play like a weak, scared, passive victim. You will lose, and deserve to lose. If you realize that you're about as lucky as everyone else, you can play like a confident decisive winner.


  1. That's a very good poker pearl, Mojo. I agree.

  2. There were two pearls in that post.

  3. No limit poker is not about the cards, but what you convince others you have - it's the selling of stories.

    I love to watch the young internet Turks - they will come back at you with zilch - confident, aggressive, insane, putting everyone to the test constantly. Either play that way or try bingo.
