Money Saved Equals Money Won

Money saved is money won. When we sit down to play poker, we come out swinging with good hands, so we can stack the chips.

It makes us happy. After all, when we drag a pot and display our primacy at the holy game of poker, it's visible evidence of skill, knowledge, cunning, and luck. What's more, our opponents can see it too, and breathes there a poker player alive who is not justifiably proud of a terrific bluff, or an ability to convince an opponent to bet into the stone cold nuts?

How to Psyche Out Your Opponents Without Psyching Out Yourself

In a psychologically demanding game like poker, winning involves outthinking and outwitting your opponents and is a far cry from force-of-will sports like weightlifting, where a desire to push weight always wages war with a countervailing impulse to let go of the damned thing before gravity destroys you.

Selectivity and aggression require players to take a position somewhere between those two extremes to optimize the chances for success. "Do I push, pull, or fold; or do I simply wait and see what develops before committing my chips to the pot?" That's always the
question, isn't it?

Short Stacked Play: Part 1

It's never fun being short stacked, especially in a tournament. Being short stacked in a cash game is no fun either, but you have an easy out. You can always reach into your wallet and buy more chips. Of course you might have deliberately bought in to a no-limit cash game for a relatively small amount of chips so that you won't have to make a decision about all of them, because all of your chips represent a sizeable amount of risk every time you play a hand.

Another Day, Another Decade

Seems like the Millennium was only yesterday, when we watched televised celebrations from one time zone to another before it reached California. The New Year's Eve Party I attended turned into a poker game at the stroke of twelve-the first poker game of the new century.

Sometime after midnight we checked the computer to see if those dire Y2K warnings were true. But we were all still here, alive and well, and able to log on to the internet, and all seemed right with the world.
