OK, so I'm NOT too old...
OK, so I've just established whether or not I'm too old to start playing poker at 40, having only started to plaay poker in May 2009.
Now I have had a chance to take stock of my game, and I find myself facing another dilemma. I have a reasonably creative mind, I am after all, a graphic designer by trade. I also have a reasonably good understanding of maths and sciences, having studied Geophysics at the University of East Anglia.
My problem arises when I can see three suited cards facing me, I know my two pair is easily beaten with the possible hands that are on the table. I bet, I am either raised or called and I call again just to be beaten by what I knew my opponent was holding!!!
I have discovered that poker is not just about what you are holding, but also what your opponent is possibly holding... having to defy your own curiosity and ego, and having faith that you have made the right decision, at all times.
Which then brings about my question to you... Am I just to stubborn to fold when I have muck, just so I can satisfy my naive curiosty?
