Hmmmm, the version of that I've heard is that money not lost is the same as money won. Always in the back of my mind, especially when I get KK, AA, is that winning a little pot is much better than losing a big pot.
AA early in any sitting scares the bejesus out of me too. Later, after things have calmed I play them confidantly, but early, when folks seem to be looking for any action, and have too much money in thier pockets I sing the Jeopardy Theme, and am very cautious.
