Happy Days

I talk with a lot of poker players, and on occasion the topic moves to that of a magical online kingdom, that only existed in years gone by, where every player was terrible and you only had to read one book to be able to win at poker. This long forgotten land, buried deep in the annals of history is nothing more than a memory, a myth and a legend. If only we could go back in time to how it was.

No reason to reminisce

This is the attitude of a player who does not want to move with the times. He is happier thinking about how he used to beat the games, but isn’t prepared to put in the increased effort that’s required today. Momma always said to me ‘you get out of life what you put in’. Computer programmers refer to it as the acronym ‘GIGO’, meaning Garbage In, Garbage Out.

To use another computing term, it is definitely a constant. Poker epitomises life, you create situations, attempting to maximise your potential gain. These potential prospects won’t always go your way, but ultimately those who make the most effort have a significantly higher success rate.
