Come on, Russian, get out! It’s time to go.
You’re a professional player
and I can do this to you.
Bring the Russians on. Bring more Russians!
You played that as bad as you could.
Your career is finished. You are GONE!
The beautiful thing about poker is
that everybody thinks they can play.
Christopher Bryan Moneymaker
the Main Event at the 2003 World Series of Poker)
Poker is like sex.
Everyone thinks they’re the best
but most people don’t have a clue
what they’re doing.
Boom! 9-high like a boss!
The cardinal sin in poker,
worse than playing bad cards,
worse even than figuring your odds incorrectly,
is becoming emotionally involved.
Katherine “Katy” Lederer
Poker Face: A Girlhood Among Gambler
In the poker game of life,
women are the rake.
Worm (Edward Norton)
From the film, Rounders
It’s all about doing
the wrong thing at the right time.
Like life, I guess.
Lancey Howard (Edward G. Robinson)
From the film, The Cincinnati Kid
Poker is like sex – it’s more fun when you go all-in.
If you can’t spot the sucker
30 minutes after sitting down at a table,
it’s probably you.
Even a blind squirrel
finds the nuts once in a while.
