    Good advice. I agree with you that many poker players do not know when to stop and because they lose all they have. Knowledge from books is a great way for success in all things in life.

    I play poker since I was 14 years old. (I’ve learned it after I saw the movie Bret Maverick with James Garner) 😉

    The best thing what poker teaches me, also for life, is to never underestimate the other players and to learn when it’s time to stand up from the table and to go home for this day.
