The trick is not just knowing when to fold. its also caring enough to fold.
At this stage, im jaded enough to want to see the hands Im beaten by rather than worry about the money.
I was much better in my youth when I could fold with pride.
Now I call out of spite ;-)
Poker has broken me. haha
It is a good quote tho. Long term success doesn't come from winning your good hands, it comes from not losing so much on your bad ones.
