At our last tourney we had several guys pushing hard all night but with a little luck and patience I was able to get in the money and get paid for 3rd place. Not bad considering that I had gotten into some pretty bad habits, and in past tourneys I was jumping into too many hands. Then I watched this video of my favorite player, “Kid Poker”, going heads up with one of the great poker queens, Vanessa Rousso and immediately understood– I mean it hit me like a Mack Truck — what Kenny Rogers really meant when he sang “You Got To Know When To Hold Them, Know When To Fold Them”.
Daniel knew when to fold them against Vanessa. And I knew when to fold them and muck my cards at just the right time to keep my 3rd place finish and rake in all those sweet deluxe poker chips.
