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

In "Confessions of a Winning Poker Player," Jack King said, "Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career." It seems true to me, cause walking in here, I can hardly remember how I built my bankroll, but I can't stop thinking about the way I lost it.

The game is no limit hold 'em. The Cadillac of poker.

You can't lose what you don't put in the middle. But you can't win much either.

Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.

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

"In order to live, you must be willing to die." - Amir Vahedi
A very true principle to be applied to poker as a whole. I originally heard Tony G say it, but knew it had to come from somewhere else lol.

This is for me the ultimate song about poker{to be honest i don't know any other lol}and just a good song imo, but also because i met a old live poker player 28 years ago that gave me similar advice after he won about 10-15k{in dutch guilders that is,don't know what the rate guilder-dollar was at the time}and he gave me the advice i never forgot till this day: boy i have never seen a angry/mad man win any money on a poker-table.
And i have played and talked to that man many times since that day, and i truly believe that that man saved me hundred's of thousands of dollars since that day.
And that man literary died on a poker table with about 100k of profits in front of him, and i was there and i knew that his dream/wish of where he wanted to die had come true, since he had no living family anymore, i can tell you the animal shelter here in town had a big donation the next day, but still i had the feeling that i lost a second father that night, so that is another reason that i like this song because it reminds me of the best poker player i have ever played against and of a good man that was a gambler his whole live, but he never won alone, many people he helped and most people didn't know it that he helped other people until his funeral where almost 250 people showed up and this was a man without any family.
Yea for me this man was the gambler, and one of the best man i ever met.
Rest in piece my friend.
Haven't got any sayings sorry, but i was impressed with your tribute to the dude who died, and seeing as i am in a similar situation as him, as in no living family, i too shall donate to animal charitie/s when i die. I had been giving this some thought strangely enough, and your story has now sold me on the idea, it helps that i love dogs too i guess.

This is what I tell my wife:

Playing poker is like being a secret service agent - hours and hours of boredom interrupted by brief moments of excitement.

I like to pull out one of Doyle's sayings when someone is whining about a bad beat: "That's poker folks."

Well that is very good from you, animals give unconditional love, and we gave the money from the table from the old man that night to a animal shelter, because we knew he was walking dogs there on a regular basis, because he knew he was not home enough to give the dog the live he deserved.

And a dog is a great way to meet other people[and women if you know what i mean] but make sure you can give the dog enough time and you have the time to walk the dog [at least 2 times a day for a hour] otherwise don't do it, and make sure you can afford a pet, a cat is for instance a perfect animal that has time-wise low maintenance, and can be a great companion, shelters have most of the time good info about a cats/dogs character, and are usually in good health.

“Life like poker is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.”
― Jack London

“Whoever coined the phrase 'a man's got to play the hand that was dealt him' was most certainly one piss-poor bluffer.”
― Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

“Fold or Make them fold. Don't show all your cards in each game.”
― Pooja Garg

“The rules are strict but simple: Poker asks, nay, commands all its adherents to cut the bull**** and embrace reality. It will toy with the deluded — those who have everything figured out — with the playful cruelty of a cat toying with a mouse. Bring all of your convictions and credentials, your anger and insecurities to the poker table and the Poker Gods will tease you and mock you and fill you with false hopes and send you to the ATM a few times before releasing you, broke and steaming, at 5am.”
― Katya G. Cohen, The American Spellbound

“Life is just a big game of Texas hold'em, unexpected things may arise that may suite you or destroy you. You gotta make the best of the cards your dealt, adjust accordingly, and always understand that you control your decisions.”
― Mustafa Said
