Shortly after Greg Raymer won the 2004 World Championship of Poker, I met him at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles, California. When asked what advice to people who have had to learn to play poker, said players often. They feel they have to use fancy moves to win at poker if, in fact, ABC poker is usually much higher, especially in tournaments.
In this spirit, here is my poker / ABC Life. In my opinion, in every lesson of poker, there is a life lesson.
