Chip Reese and 2 Quotes
I will not go deep into Chip Reese the poker player and most importantly the man. His stories are of legend and plentiful. But while reading I came across 2 quotes that have changed my poker game
and has raised Chip Reese beyond icon. The first quote I found on Daniel Negreanu blog. I had it on my sig but new sig rules have forced me to take it off...
when asked why he plays with the best in the world. Chip said, “When they are on there A game they are all fantastic players, some probably better than my A game. The thing is, my D game isn’t much different than my A game.”
I was sitting with him one time before The Big Game started and this guy walked in offering him a $1,500/$3,000 heads-up Stud game. I sweated Chip for the thirty minutes they played, and when the guy got ahead he made an excuse about having to leave. Chip said, ‘Go ahead, I enjoyed it.’
‘Mike,’ he told me, ‘that’s why I’m successful. Most players are like that guy. When they win, they win a little. When they lose, they lose a lot. I’m the opposite.’
The words speak for themselves.
