Mike Cappelletti is one of those players who is good at both poker and bridge. In his column from the latest Card Player magazine (see scan above), he says:
When you find yourself short-stacked, it is usually better to look for a high-percentage gamble rather than wait and pray for the big pocker pair that seldom comes when you need it.
If you wait too long, the other players will be much more likely to call. It's better to make your big moves when your stack is still big enough to command some respect.
I'm on vacation. I'll resume more regular blogging next week.
