Play Online Poker and Learn to Handle Your Losses

“You cannot survive without that intangible quality we call heart. The mark of a top player is not how much he wins when he is winning but how he handles his losses. If you win for thirty days in a row, that makes no difference if on the thirty-first you have a bad night, go crazy, and throw it all away.” – Bobby Baldwin

Bobby Baldwin is a legendary poker player from the 1970s who lives in Las Vegas and is CEO and President of Project City Center, the gigantic hotel and casino development on the main Las Vegas strip. Clearly this is man who knows what he is talking about. I mean the high stakes signature poker room in the Bellagio is named “Bobby’s Room” after him! So any of you who like to play online poker, should listen closely because there is no doubt that you will profit from his gems of wisdom.

Handling your losses is an often underrated part of playing poker but is even more important than winning, because if you don’t know how to handle your losses and you end up spunking all your cash away without thinking about how much you need to conserve, you’ll end up with none of your winnings.
