Poker gems, #196

Jeff Madsen, in Bluff magazine column, September, 2008, p. 60.

We play poker because it makes us feel alive more than most things that don't threaten our physical well being. It targets the next closest thing, our emotional and mental well being... along with our comfort and financial security of course. Some can handle tampering with those things, some cannot. Those that can't should not be playing poker for anything more than fun.

That's a great, insightful quote. Well I thought so til I realized that anyone's who sat down at a 1-2 nl table at the Flamingo and played for 30 minutes could have come up with it.
