Folding Hands in Poker & Last Night's Tournament
So I've tried to keep folding hands, and folding more hands. I've been folding before the flop, and I've been folding hands after the flop. I think I've gotten to a point where I could fold fifty hands in a row preflop, then fold fifty more hands after that if the cards weren't good enough to play. That kind of patience and detachment are what Larry preaches over and over again in both of his books, Zen and the Art of Poker and The Tao of Poker.
These are the three main themes in Larry Phillips's book, and I should probably print them out on a poster and hang them over my computer.
