5. All game play is based on deception.
6. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when we have a made hand, we must seem floating; when we are ahead, we must make the valiant believe we are behind; when we flop a hand, we must make him believe we missed.
7. Hold out baits to entice the valiant. Feign weakness, and crush him.
8. If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him.
9. If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
10. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. Raise and bluff him off till he is irritated.
11. Attack him where he is unprepared, raise where you are not expected.
12. Now the player who win a hand makes many calculations on the table. The player who loses a hand makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory.
