In 1945, farmer Lloyd Olsen wanted a nice chicken dinner, so he went out and selected Mike, who was a Wyandotte chicken. He put Mike on the block and brought his axe down, chopping Mike’s head off. To Lloyd’s surprise, Mike didn’t die. In fact, he lived another 18 months, touring as a sideshow act. See, Mike was just too dumb to know he was dead.
You don’t want to be Mike.
I see so many people who just don’t know when they are dead. I mean, come on, your pocket 7s are probably no good with 4 to a flush and a pile of broadway cards on the board, especially when you see a lot of action. Give it up already, you’re beat, m’kay?
Now don’t get me wrong, those who refuse to fold are as yummy as Mike was, but really, you have to recognize when your hand is beat and make that laydown. If you aren’t getting the right price to chase, you shouldn’t chase. You will lose money in the long run, even if you do hit one of your 2 outs occasionally.
So learn to mash that fold button now and then, it will save you from being a part of someone’s dinner.
