Jack London
“Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.”
Jack London

Jeannette Walls
“Whoever coined the phrase 'a man's got to play the hand that was dealt him' was most certainly one piss-poor bluffer.”
Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

“It’s a dove, an attractive girl, a winning card in poker, take your pick. You’re my Pigeon.”
Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster

Colson Whitehead
“Life! What Inscrutable Card Shall Ye Throw Next Upon the Soft Felt of Our Days?”
Colson Whitehead

Mallika Nawal
“A good lawyer, just like a good poker player, must always keep his cards close to his chest.”
Mallika Nawal, I'm a Woman & I'm on SALE

Heidi Cullinan
“I can win anytime. Kevin's going to go back to Burbank and tell everybody in his cubicle how he won at the Golden Nugget. Sometimes the pot isn't the money.”
Heidi Cullinan, Double Blind

Tim Harford
“What, then, should you do? With an excellent hand, you should bet: You lose nothing if your opponent folds, while giving yourself a good chance of winning a big pot if he calls. But with a middling hand, you shouldn't bet: If he has a bad hand, he'll fold, and you'll win the ante, which is what you'd have won anyway by checking; but if he has a good hand, he'll call and win. It's heads he wins, tails you don't. You should check instead, and hope your middling hand wins the ante.

What about with a terrible hand? Should you check or bet? The answer is surprising. Checking would be unwise, because the hands will be compared and you will lose. It actually makes more sense to bet with these bad hands, because the only way he might drop out is if you make a bet. Perversely, you are better off betting with awful cards than with mediocre ones, the quintessential (and rational) bluff.

There's a second reason for you to bet with terrible cards rather than middling ones: Your opponent will have to call a little more often. Because he knows that your bets are sometimes very weak, he can't afford to fold too easily. That means that when you bet with a good hand, you are more likely to be called, and to win when you are. Because you are bluffing with bad cards, your good hands make more money.”
Tim Harford, The Logic of Life: The Rational Economics of an Irrational World

Howard Tayler
“They're holding flushes of face cards, and I think we're the pot.”
Howard Tayler, Emperor Pius Dei

Dan Harrington
“All serious poker players try to minimize their tells, obviously. There are a couple ways to go about this. One is the robotic approch: where your face becomes a mask and your voice a monotone, at least while the hand is being played. . . . The other is the manic method, where you affect a whole bunch of tics, twitches, and expressions, and mix them up with a river of insane babble. The idea is to overwhelm your opponents with clues, so they can't sort out what's going on. This approach can be effective, but for normal people it's hard to pull off. (If you've spent part of your life in an institution, this method may come naturally.)”
Dan Harrington, Harrington on Hold 'em: Expert Strategy for No-Limit Tournaments, Volume I: Strategic Play

“The idea is that people remember two things about an experience: the peak, and the end. In a poker game, when people think about another player they'll mostly remember any really good hands that the player got, and how he was doing at the end of the game. You took care to win only on believable hands and to leave on a losing streak—you completely blanked their peak-end retention.”

“I'm going to be frank, Max..."
"Of course. All cards on the table." But he gave me a poker smile.”
Alfred Alcorn, The Counterfeit Murder in the Museum of Man

“Life is so fragile and unpredictable, especially when you are in a gang or in a life of crime. It’s like playing poker; you think to yourself that you have a good hand. However, it is only when you reveal your hand do you sometimes discover to your horror that someone else’s hand is better.”
Drexel Deal, The Fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father

Vann Chow
“Conventional wisdom nor scientific, mathematical prove of randomness in life could do nothing to deter human's curiosity for the unknown, however small the chance of a positive outcome maybe.”
Vann Chow, The White Man and the Pachinko Girl

Robert A. Heinlein
“I don't gamble, if you will concede that poker is a game of skill.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Glory Road

“Fold or Make them fold. Don't show all your cards in each game.”

“She’s a poker player’s wet dream. Sorry, sweetheart, you can’t bluff for anything.”
Katherine McIntyre, Poisoned Apple

“Life is just a big game of Texas hold'em, unexpected things may arise that may suite you or destroy you. You gotta make the best of the cards your dealt, adjust accordingly, and always understand that you control your decisions.”
Mustafa Said

“The rules are strict but simple: Poker asks, nay, commands all its adherents to cut the bullshit and embrace reality. It will toy with the deluded — those who have everything figured out — with the playful cruelty of a cat toying with a mouse. Bring all of your convictions and credentials, your anger and insecurities to the poker table and the Poker Gods will tease you and mock you and fill you with false hopes and send you to the ATM a few times before releasing you, broke and steaming, at 5am.”
Katya G. Cohen, The American Spellbound

“A girl's gotta have her Mystery.
You can hardly win at poker if your cards lay bare on the table for all to see...
One need be Strategic...”
Daleen Van Tonder

Colson Whitehead
“Spoiler: I didn't win the Main Event. You had suspicions, you say? For one thing, the subtitle of this book would be "The Amazing Life-Affirming Story of an Unremarkable Jerk Who Won the World Series of Poker!" instead of having the word "Death" in it. For another, do these sound like the words of a motherfucker who won a million goddamn dollars?”
Colson Whitehead, The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death

“Screenwriting is like poker; in the end, you have to go all in.”
A.D. Posey

Colson Whitehead
“In the dank utility room deep in the subbasements of my personality, a little man wiped his hands on his overalls and pulled the switch: More.”
Colson Whitehead

Dan Harrington
“Ace-king is a fine hand. Ace-queen is a little weaker, but still good. With ace-jack, you're already sliding rapidly down a slippery slope. With ace-ten, you've slid down the slope, fallen off the cliff, and lie in wreckage at the bottom with hands like ace-five and ace-six.”
Dan Harrington, Harrington on Hold 'em: Expert Strategy for No-Limit Tournaments, Volume I: Strategic Play

William Faulkner
“Look. You are playing poker (I assume you know poker, or at least—like a lot of people—anyway play it.) You draw cards. When you do that, you affirm two things: either that you have something to draw to, or are willing to support to your last cent the fact that you have not. You dont draw and then throw the cards in because they are not what you wanted, expected, hoped for; not just for the sake of your own soul and pocket-book, but for the sake of the others in the game, who have likewise assumed that unspoken obligation.”
William Faulkner, Knight's Gambit

Allan Dare Pearce
“Something girls never understood about poker night. The real point of the card play was to razz. Razzing calls forth unbridled farm-boy humour, earthy by some standards. The best quip involves belittling someone else's penis, or turning it back on the sayer, or both.”
Allan Dare Pearce, Paris in April
