Learning the hard way

Pretty cool article about learning from gambling… and just how difficult that can be, as I’m sure we’ve all experienced. =)

“Like a kind of funhouse psychotherapy, gambling shows you who you are by lighting up the dark corners of the self and exposing the grandiose workings of the ego.”

Do you still hunt the thrill? I can’t imagine the excitement of a big pot ever goes away, but the scale of high stakes poker is crazy to me.

When playing poker for money, bank roll management is the most important aspect. No matter how good a player you are, without bank roll management you are going to come off 2nd best.
