Poker by George | It’s always exciting to be dealt pocket Aces (A-A) while playing Texas hold’em. It’s a rare experience; you can expect to be dealt that only one out of 221 hands on average. So cherish the occasion; make the most of it.

I wonder if poker players could learn from the great basketball coaches. Coaches at the elite level all seem to possess very similar traits. They can recruit and, most importantly, they can coach.
