re: Poker & What was the best advice you heard?
Don't let a bad beat get the best of you.... especially if you still have a decent amount of chips in play and are able to come back from it.
Emotions can affect the way you play in a great way and they can also determine whether you will come out on top or just count the seconds until you bust out.
I have been caught up in many many hands where I thought I had the best hand without a doubt only to be outplayed or beaten out by a stronger hand.... and when that happens I just remind myself to keep my composure.
There are times where I thought I was down and out, but I just kept a cool-head and played some damn good poker and found myself in the money many of times.
