11-2-05Foolish people think that because poker has a large random factor, it's a silly game. In fact, games without randomness are the exception - chess is one, but the majority of games have a lot of randomness, even so-called games of skill like baseball and football have huge random components. That's why they play 500 baseball games in a season, because the result of any one at-bat is very random.
I want a 1st place in a big tournament. It's not at all about the money, I just want that moment, that feeling. It's as close as I'll ever come to the ecstasy of winning the super bowl or something like that. Today I played very well and lost five tournaments in a row. I've had a streak of taking a 1st place every day for the last 5 days, looks like that streak is over.
