À propos

This book defines winning in the standard way, “maximizing your long-term profits.” If your definition is different, some of its advice may conflict with what you want. When my advice conflicts with your priorities, decide whether your priorities are really right for you

I emphasized “really” because most people don’t seriously examine their priorities. It’s a terrible mistake. As Socrates put it, “An unexamined life is not worth living.” If you don’t examine your motives, you can make extremely serious errors, not just at poker, but everywhere.

If you seriously examine your motives and decide that your personal definition of winning is different from the standard one of profit maximizing, you should ignore or modify some of my advice.

But understand why you’re doing so, and don’t pretend that you’re not losing anything. Since you can’t avoid trade-offs, make sure that you understand the costs and benefits of various alternatives and then make an informed decision. To put it bluntly, if you don’t know where you want to go, you’re probably not going to get there.
