Poker gems, #406

John Vorhaus, in Card Player magazine column, January 12, 2011 (vol. 24, #1), p. 62.

Or, let's say that you're the one with the aces.... You raise, of course, yet somehow manage to attract three callers. Now, the flop comes 8-7-6 in suit, and all hell breaks loose. The action goes bet, raise, reraise, and now it's on you. How good are your aces now? Good for nothing, right? Not exactly. They're still good for a good decision, a handsome laydown.

That's the chance that you have, the one that you always have--the chance to make a good decision, without expectation, without resentment, and without ego. Can you do that?

Standard flop for my aces. Alternates with J9J.

Laying them down is the hardest part of the game imho.
