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


Here are a few good ones from the internet and that I’ve heard around.

“The beautiful thing about poker is that everyone thinks they can play” – Chris Moneymaker (and the quote is pretty ironic coming from him).

One of my personal favorites:
“Fold and live to fold again” – Stu Unger

You can sheer a sheep a hundred times, but you can skin it only once. – Amarillo Slim

Another favorite:
“No-limit Holdem; hours of boredom followed by moments of sheer terror” – Tom McEvoy

“The smarter you play, the luckier you’ll be.” – Max Pilarski
True in a sense, but: the smarter you play, the larger the proportion of your losses that will be bad beats, so you’ll feel unlucky. It’s bad players who often appear to get lucky because they are making mistakes all the time.

“Anyone can play like Ivey, but no one does.”

“You never know what Worse Luck your Bad Luck has saved you from.”

What’s your guys’ favorite poker-related quote, like the ones that come with the daily bonus pop up?

Mine is, “Poker is not about whether you win or lose, it’s about how many bad beat stories you’re able to tell.”
