Re: do you have any quotes and/or sayings about poker

You can shear a sheep a hundred times, but you can skin it only once. — Amarillo Slim Preston

Poker is a lot like sex. Everyone thinks they are the best, but most don’t have a clue what they are doing. — Dutch Boyd

. If there weren’t luck involved, I would win every time. — Phil Hellmuth [good old phil hahahaha]

Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser — Stu Ungar

Poker is generally reckoned to be America's second most popular after-dark activity. Sex is good, they say, but poker lasts longer.

Never give a sucker an even break

The single greatest key to winning is knowing thy enemy — yourself.

I never saw a poker player’s money that I did not like.

-- Oklahoma Johnny Hale

The good news is that in every deck of fifty-two cards there are 2,598,960 possible hands. The bad news is that you are only going to be dealt one of them.

Forget about a chip and a chair; give me a hand and I’ll stand



One day a chump, the next day a champion. What a difference a day makes in tournament poker.



They say poker is a zero-sum game. It must be, because every time I play my sum ends up zero.



Omaha is a game that was invented by a Sadist and is played by Masochists.



A person should gamble every day, because think of how bad it would be to walk around being lucky and not know it.

There are few things that are so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker. The upper class knows very little about poker. Now and then you find ambassadors who have sort of a general knowledge of poker, but the ignorance of the people is fearful. Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kind-hearted, liberal, sincere, and all that, who did not know the meaning of a "flush". It is enough to make one ashamed of the species.

-- Mark Twain

It's hard work. Gambling. Playing poker. Don't let anyone tell you different. Think about what it's like sitting at a poker table with people whose only goal is to cut your throat, take your money, and leave you out back talking to yourself about what went wrong inside.

-- Stu Unger, Three-time WSOP Champion

God I love poker, and all this quotes make me realize why, because there is a endless sea of words you can say about poker, and then there are still more, and I for one can't get enough of them, the only game I can play for 24 hours and still be pumped up to play another 24, there is nothing like it, well sex and great food are!, to be honest, but the problem is they don't last as long as poker.

Don't fear failure.
not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.

90% of the game is half-mental!

Re: do you have any quotes and/or sayings about poker

"I knew that if I ever went broke at poker, it wouldn’t be because my best wasn’t good enough to keep me afloat. It’d be because my worst was bad enough to sink me." - Tommy Angelo

Since the first time I heard this quote, it hasn't stopped reverberating through my thoughts. You can be the best player in the world, but if you can't handle the swings...GG.

Mine involve swear words having had the river card shoved up my ass (metaphorically) for the 5th in one night by a drunk high on crack.
