Page 6 - This is a discussion on Favorite Poker Quotes within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; We know the poker world is populated with some extremely colorful characters who have entertained us over the years with some very memorable quotes.
“Hold’em is a game of calculated aggression. If your cards are good enough for you to call a bet, they are good enough to raise with.”
This quote from author Alfred Alvarez is actually a great piece of advice. Many top players would agree that, in most circumstances, if your cards are strong enough to call, then you should actually probably raise.

My favorite quote is my own. I was playing at the final table of a $600 buy in PLO8 tournament. I was holding 34JJ not sure what the suits were. Somebody raised, I folded my hand but when I did my hand got flipped over. Someone made some remark like I can't believe you folded that. My response was "If you think I should have called a raise with that hand you're going to have a hard time beating me today."
“The strong point in poker is never to lose your temper, either with those you are playing or, more particularly with the cards. There is no sympathy in poker. Always keep cool. If you lose your head you will lose all your chips.” -- William J. Florence
