re: Poker & trash hands
There are those nights where it seems like many hands you fold would have been the winning hand. But your still beter off to play the odds
and be aware of position and the actions of the other players at the table. Take advantage of opportunities to steal pots, but don't commit all your chips or too many chips on such risks.
Play a variety of hands and mix up your play. Don't allow you opponents to get a good read on your style of play. Always be aware of the image you are portraying at the table.
