Loose Ends – Something bad can come from something that looks good

come from something that was so good”
— Bruce Springsteen
The starting hand fetish that many weaker players fixate on as a central aspect of their games directly leads to a corresponding lack of ability to lose well. Players look at AK or QQ in Texas Holdem and think “wow, what a great hand” and start counting the money they will be raking in. The game is not that easy however.
