I've lost money so fast in these clubs it's left me reeling. I've read every poker book ever written, but the only way to get better at the game is to go out and play with people who are really good. The problem is, you stand to lose a lot of money doing it. - Matt Damon, who was quickly eliminated from the $10,000 main event at the WSOP in 1998.

So if a guy wants to bet twenty or thirty thousand dollars in a poker game, that is his privilege. - Jack Binion

Teamwork? Who ever made a fortune by teamwork? There's only one way to make a fortune, and that's to down the fellow who's up against you. - Somerset Maugham from Cosmopolitans

The real things to know is that folks will stand to lose more than they will to win. That’s the most important percentage there is. I mean, if they lose, they’re willin’ to lose everything. If they win, they’re usually satisfied to win enough to pay for dinner and a show. The best gamblers know that. - Pug Pearson
