Poker und Liebe - Gemeinsamkeiten

So jetzt noch mal auf deutsch:

Gedanken zu den Parallelen zwischen Poker und dem "Spiel der Liebe":

Manchmanl (nicht nur beim Pokern) gibt man auf (folds), weil man glaubt mit dem was man zu bieten hat eh keine Chance zu haben, nur um nachher (wenn es zu spät ist - da man ja aufgegeben hat) herauszufinden, dass das was man zu bieten hatte das Spiel gewonnen hätte.

Im Leben wie beim Pokern setzt man manchmal einfach alles was man hat ("all in" in Pokersprache) weil man glaubt, dass die Chancen um sovieles besser als durchschnittlich sind, dass man einfach nicht verlieren kann, nur um wieder herauszufinden, dass man diesmal nie auch nur den Hauch einer Chance gehabt hat, oder dass die letzte Karte deinem Gegenspieler ein so gutes Blatt beschert hat, dass man einfach nur wie ein Idiot aussieht...

Aber da sind sogar noch mehr Punkte (beim Pokern und dem "Spiel der Liebe" die vergleichbar sind, an einem Tisch mit geringen Einsätzen (blinds) zu spielen, ist ein wenig wie nur auf eine Affäre oder sogar nur einen "One-Night Stand" aus zu sein, man ist sehr viel mehr gewillt Risiken einzugehen und auch zu verlieren, da man ja nicht so viel verliert und man kann - abhängig davon wie weit der Abend fortgeschritten ist - sein Glück ja noch bei einem anderen möglichen Partner Tisch versuchen...

Aber immer nur um die billige Affäre an den Poker-Tischen mit geringen Einsätzen spielen wird einen auch langfristig nirgendwo hin bringen. So früher oder später muss man 'rüber an die Tische mit den hohen Einsätzen, wo man es vielleicht ein wenig mehr auf Sicherheit bedacht angehen sollte, aber andererseits wenn man es zu vorsichtig spielt, wie zum Beispiel immer zu passen (folden) wenn es nicht perfekt scheint, wird man älter und älter ohne auch nur irgendwann mal versucht zu haben den großen Coup (fürs Leben) gelandet zu haben... und die Blinds die man auch einfach passt knabbern auch auf Dauer gewaltig am Ego Kapital...

Zu diesem Post wurde ich durch ein Zitat bin inspiriert über das ich kürzlich gestolpert bin:

"Sind Affären billig? Und wenn schon, wer geht denn pleite und investiert danach gleich wieder alles. Geht es dabei ums polieren des Ego? Na ja, wenn jemand das Ego zerkratzt, muss irgendwer es ja wieder aufpolieren. Benutzt man die Affäre? Oh ja, die beschweren sich bestimmt."

Thoughts on the parallels between the "game of love" and poker...

Sometimes (not only on Poker) you fold, 'cause you think you don't have any chance with what you've got, just to find out yours would have been the best hand playing.

In live and on Poker you sometimes simply go "all in" cause you think your chances are so much better than average, so you just can't lose, again just to find out this time you've never had a chance, or the last card gives your opponent such a good hand that you simply look like an idiot...

But there are more things comparable between poker and the "game of love", going on a low bid table is like going for a little affair or even a one-night stand, you're much more open to take risks and lose, since it's not much you lose and you can - depending how late the evening - even buy in on another prospect table...

But always just playing for the cheap affair on the low-bid poker tables won't get you anywhere in the long run. So sooner or later you have to move over to the high stake tables, where you maybe should play it a little safer, but on the other hand if you're playing it too safe, like always folding if it's not the perfect hand you might end up getting older and older without even ever tried to win the big one... and the blinds you're folding away are gnawing at your self-esteem capital anyway...

This post was inspired by a quote I came across recently:

"Are affairs cheap? Who cares, 'cause who goes broke and then immediately invests everything again. Is it about polishing your self-esteem? Well, if somebody scratches your self-esteem, somebody has to polish it up again. Are you abusing the affair? Oh yes, they will complain for sure."
