Instead of writing about who we are, what we do, why we started our site and everything in between – we thought we’d do things differently. We sourced and asked our team who their favourite players are and why they love them.

Boy, did we have too much content, so we decided to simply things a bit, we asked them to provide us with their favourite quotes of their player as this will represent them. We advise that you Google each player, you know get to know the name behind the quote, maybe you might find a new player you didn’t even know about…

Who Said What – Quotes about poker

 “The beautiful thing about poker is that everyone thinks they can play.”

Chris Moneymaker

 “If you’re playing a poker game and you look around the table and can’t tell who the sucker is, it’s you.”

Paul Newman

 “A Smith & Wesson beats for aces.”


 “The commonest mistake in history is underestimating your opponent; it happens at the poker table all the time.”

David Shoup

 “I believe in poker the way I believe in the American Dream.  Poker is good for you.  It enriches the soul, sharpens the intellect, heals the spirit, and – when played well, nourishes the wallet.”

Lou Krieger

“Whether he likes it or not, a man’s character is stripped at the poker table; if the other players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame.  Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do, flaws and all, he will be a loser in cards, as in life.”

Anthony Holden

“You’re not allowed to give yourself a nickname. This holds true in life as well as in poker.”

Richard Roeper

 “Poker is a microcosm of all we admire and disdain about capitalism and democracy.  It can be rough-hewn or polished, warm or cold, charitable and caring, or hard and impersonal, fickle and elusive, but ultimately it is fair, and right, and just. “

Lou Krieger
