-- Crandall Addington, Texas oil millionaire (2001)


Industry executives and analysts often mistakenly talk about strategy as if it were some kind of chess match. But in chess, you have just two opponents, each with identical resources, and with luck playing a minimal role. The real world is much more like a poker game, with multiple players trying to make the best of whatever hand fortune has dealt them. In our industry, Bill Gates owns the poker table until someone proves otherwise.

-- David Moschella



You have to learn what kind of hand this guy shows down, what that one's moves, watch the veins in his neck, watch his eyes, the way he sweats.

-- Johnny Moss (1975)



Hold'em is to to stud and draw what chess is to checkers.

Money isn't everything … unless you're playing in a rebuy tournament.

Your first duty is to the Game; then come Mother, God, and Country.

-- Anonymous



I believe in poker the way I believe in the American Dream. Poker is good for you. It enriches the soul, sharpens the intellect, heals the spirit, and - when played well, nourishes the wallet.

-- Anonymous

Put yourself in their shoes before you decide on the best way to take their shirts.

-- Jack, in the Movie Titanic



Aces are larger than life and greater than mountains.

Sometimes you'll miss a bet, sure, but it's OK to miss a bet. Poker is an art form, of course, but sometimes you have to sacrifice art in favour of making a profit.

The only bad luck for a good gambler is bad health. Any other setbacks are temporary aggravation.

-- Benny Binion



I've often thought, if I got really hungry for a good milk shake, how much would I pay for one? People will pay a hundred dollars for a bottle of wine; to me that's not worth it. But I'm not going to say it is foolish or wrong to spend that kind of money, if that's what you want. So if a guy wants to bet twenty or thirty thousand dollars in a poker game, that is his privilege.

-- Jack Binion



Try to decide how good your hand is at a given moment. Nothing else matters. Nothing!

-- Doyle Bunson



If you’re a competitive person and you commit yourself to something, you have no choice but to endure.

-- W C Fields



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

-- Robert Turner



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



Learning to play two pairs is worth about as much as a college education, and about as costly.

-- Mark Twain?



The two things you need to be successful in poker are, first, find the muck, and second, don’t play your own money.

Poker is not a game in which the meek inherit the earth.

-- David Hayano (1982)



Play like a champ. Win like a champ. Act like a champ.

-- Henderson, Frank



The winner is not the player who wins the most pots. The winner is the player who wins the most money.

-- Anthony Holden, author of Big Deal (1990)



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.

-- Anthony Holden, author of Big Deal (1990)



Whether he likes it or not, a man's character is stripped bare at the poker table; if the other poker players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame. Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do, flaws and all, he will be a loser in poker, as in life.

-- Anthony Holden, author of Big Deal (1990)



Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you will be a mile away, and you will have his shoes.

-- Canada Bill Jones



Cards are war, in disguise of a sport.

-- Charles Lamb (1832)



Poker is the game closest to the western conception of life, where life and thought are recognized as intimately combined, where free will prevails over philosophies of fate or of chance, where men are considered moral agents and where - at least in the short run - the important thing is not what happens but what people think happens.

-- Johnny Luckacs (1963)



Life is like a game of poker: If you don't put any in the pot, there won't be any to take out.
