Poker Quote Wisdom

Not A Human With Less Regard For Money Than Me

"Right now there is probably not a human being in the world with less regard for money than me. I make bets for thousands of dollars that I know I can't win. I was at the poker table once and made a $5,000 bet with Howard Lederer that Shawshank Redemption won best picture. Doyle Brunson told me not to make that bet because he made it once and lost. Of course, I didn't listen, and had to give Howard $5,000."

- Mike Matusow

Ignore Doyle Brunson's advice at your peril.

A Game About People

"No matter how much you may want to think of Holdem as a card game played by people, in many respects it is even more valid to think of it as a game about people that happens to be played with cards."

- Phil Hellmuth

People are always giving away information when they play Holdem; it may be a tell of Kramer-esque proportions or simple betting patterns. Part of your game play needs to be based on the cards in your pocket and on the board, but another, possibly larger part, needs to be based on what you have learned from your opponents. Like Mike's quotes in "Rounders", always keep watching them.
