Bad Cards

It’s not the cards, it’s how you handle the cards. The chips I bet are put on the table to defend the best hand, whether it is the best or not. The next split second decision involves trying to detect if you are going to have to show those cards.  The next decision, whether you want a caller.  Your demeanor at that point needs to support your decision.  Sometimes the best cards are bad cards.  Maddening.

If hand after hand you are running cold, well it might be time to take a walk, get a soda, stand up, miss a few.
