Heavy Lifting
In my last post we learned that one of the best ways to avoid tilt is to punch yourself in the head. Not only does it strengthen your mental reserves, it also counts as exercise.

If I had only a single piece of advice for the youth of today, it would be this: Do not give in to the BS!

 

Stack of ones
Nothing but ones.

Make your pennies, cherish them, hide them in your pillowcase until it is full, make more pennies and then hide them in a second pillowcase until it is full; then make even more pennies and hide them in a third pillowcase in a seemingly endless process until from curiosity you walk into the local bank and set all of your pillowcases down in front of the hottest teller they've got.

Tell her to turn your gold into paper. Ones! Nothing but ones!

At that moment you are the Emperor of the Bank. Do not leave that bank until they obey your command.

Only then, after you have bankrupted that bank of all of its one-dollar bills, will you truly understand what success means.

I wish you good chi at the tables.

Author Bio:

Yakshi is the actual name of, um, Yakshi. No last name. Like Cher or Madonna, but without the talent. After consuming nothing but strawberry-flavored Pop Tarts, chicken-flavored Top Ramen and Fat Tire beer for 18 months straight, Yakshi began to hallucinate random cards, numbers, dice, stars and coins - a vision that he struggled to formulate into an "advanced Hold'em strategy," which he now uses almost exclusively at full-ring 1¢/2¢ No-Limit tables at PokerStars.

When he is not five-bet shoving 3-2 of hearts, he may occasionally be found folding the two red aces - correctly - pre-flop. His hobbies include spelunking, cheese and nitrous oxide. He lives in Erie, Colo.
