People are forever telling me I should stop analyzing everyone and everything and just relax: You think too much. You shouldn’t think so much. Relax, will you!
Finally, there is the passive player who constantly underbet the pot. Often they simply min-bet because they are afraid to commit chips to the pot with anything other than the nuts. Even then, some timid players under value their monster hands. I once sat next to a guy at the Monte Carlo gaming room who mucked a straight flush because someone bet into him. He inadvertently flashed his cards to be and I folded a set of kings. You can believe that whenever he had cards I raised his bets when I was in position and bet into him with a substantial bet when I acted in front of him.
Therein lays a game critical weakness of an inexperienced player. They are quick to risking their whole stack on top pair – I refer to this as the Top Pair Syndrome. Here are some likely symptoms of Top Pair Syndrome. The player in question has an urgent inner desire to double up. The player in question is simply impatient. The player in question has a tendency to bully other people. Finally the player in question doesn’t understand the true value of his cards. Keep in mind that Top Pairolitis is a result of limit ring game action, where in that venue, you are often paid off with top pair – top kicker, making it a positive EV play. The virtual opposite is true in tournaments, save for specific situations.

Play only when it is your turn. This means that you keep your poker face at all times, especially when it is not your hand. This includes not making folding gestures out of turn and refraining from betting out of turn. Failing to do this can give your opponents insider information.
Be prepared, because the world of business will always be like that. It doesn’t take long to get an idea of whether the person you’re speaking with purchase your product. If not, let them go, because your time is better spent with the many others out there looking for your services.
I don’t know who’s going to win. I wish I knew who’s going to win. I have no idea. We have 17 contestants, 17, and we are long ways from knowing who’s going to win. Seventeen may sound like a small number, but that’s a lot of people and a lot of opportunities and a lot of performances and a lot of decisions, and it’s going to be really tough. I just hope that it comes out of my category whoever wins.
