Poker tables are dangerous locations for those who
believe that justice will and should prevail. Unlikely
events happen all the time and if you let them get
to you, your subsequent actions will cost you dozens
of times as much money as that single unlucky card
- If you sit and moan about your bad luck and inspire
your opponents to attack, they will do it for several
reasons: The superstitious ones will think you're
running bad, the wise ones will suspect you're on
tilt and/or not thinking clearly, and the unlucky
ones will think it's finally someone else's turn.
Just who is responsible for your defeat?
- If you sit in on a game where stakes are too high,
causing you to play too tight, or a game where stakes
are too low, causing you to play too loose, whose
mistake is that?
- If you eat a gigantic meal before playing and feel
kind of groggy and/or sluggish when playing, whose
fault is that? Whose fault is it that you haven't
exercised in a year or eaten a healthy diet in three?
