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
But always just playing
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."
