Looking at the number of quotes that compare life to a game of Poker, you cannot help notice the amount of truth in them.
Look at our world. There are those who seem to be dealt the best hand and life just keeping on getting better and better. Then, there is the rest of us.
Upon reading all of the above quotes, I’m reminded of line in ‘Casino Royale’ – “in poker you never play your hand. You play the man across from you.” This inherently means a Good Poker player knows how bluff.
More often than not, success comes from a great bluff, rather than a good hand. So in all probability, the guy who seems like he owns it all, really has nothing.
All in all, metaphors aside, if you know to play the game, you know to play the game called “Life”.
