I could think of worse ways of going than at the poker table.
Yes, I think poker really isn’t gambling.
When you make a bet, you’re saying something.
The fact that we write about it doesn’t mean we play better than ordinary players at all.
Now, if, as I think, writing should be, it’s a kind of risky trade.
I’m good at reading people.
I think one of the interesting things about poker is that once you let your ego in, you’re done for.
I hate writing.
I absolutely don’t believe in anything. Full stop. Including luck.
But in a tournament, you can be said in for all your money at any point so you can’t make any mistakes so you have to, it’s all about where you’re sitting at the table.
I mean being a writer is like being a psychoanalyst, but you don’t get any patients.
