Australian Open 2021: Novak Djokovic battles through injury, gets past Milos Raonic
By admin | | 0 Comments |


World No. 1 Novak Djokovic battled through injury once again during his fourth-round win over Milos Raonic at the Australian Open, and then made a shock admission in the aftermath. The 33-year-old defeated the Canadian 7-6, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday night, advancing to a quarterfinal showdown with Alex Zverev in the process. MORE: Frantic scenes as Open hit by COVID-19 lockdownAfter "tearing a muscle" in his abdomen on Friday night against Taylor Fritz, Djokovic revealed postmatch that he came into the Raonic match with no preparation."There was no preparation, basically, for this match," he said. "I used every hour I had since I finished the last match to recover, to try to put myself in a position where I had a possibility to compete."My physio has done a great job."Djokovic was in visible pain during the match with Raonic but still managed to get through with relative ease. His serving speed was around his normal mark.But the Serbian revealed that if this weren't a Grand Slam event, then he would have already withdrawn from the competition, such is the seriousness of his injury."If it's any other tournament other than a Grand Slam, I would retire, withdraw from the event, that's for sure," he said. "But because it's a Grand Slam, I want to give my best to try and get on the court and recover. "I didn't know before I finished my warmup today, three hours before I entered the court, whether I'm going to play or not."When it warmed up it was fine; during the match today it was kind of on and off."Djokovic will take on sixth seed Zverev on Tuesday in a rematch of their ATP Cup match just a couple of weeks ago.

Lashley boils over after four-putt
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Tied for the lead with three holes remaining at Pebble Beach, Nate Lashley missed the green and then four-putted to run up a triple-bogey seven before taking out his frustration on the green. By Keith Jackson Last Updated: 15/02/21 1:39am 0:46 Nate Lashley was tied for the lead with three holes to play at Pebble Beach until he four-putted at the 16th and ran up a triple-bogey seven. Nate Lashley was tied for the lead with three holes to play at Pebble Beach until he four-putted at the 16th and ran up a triple-bogey seven. Nate Lashley lost control of his composure and his putting stroke as he four-putted the 16th green at Pebble Beach to throw away his chances of victory on the final day. Lashley had been a front-runner for much of the final round after a four-birdie front nine, and another birdie at the 11th lifted him to the top of the leaderboard on 16 under par.The world No 115, who overcame the tragic death of his parents and girlfriend in a plane crash to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic in 2019, remained tied for the lead with Daniel Berger until taking himself out of contention with a series of errors three holes from home. Lashley took four putts to get down from 12 feet After a perfect tee shot left him a little over 150 yards for his second, Lashley's adrenaline-fuelled eight-iron flew the green and came to rest in the rough over the back, from where he did well to pitch to 12 feet and give himself a fighting chance to save par.But his bold putt wandered four feet past the cup, and he needed three more jabs to get his ball to drop, ending his challenge for a second PGA Tour title. PGA Tour Golf February 15, 2021, 7:00pm Live on And he also let his fiery temper get the better of him, angrily slamming his putter head into the green as he trudged to the 17th tee with a triple-bogey seven on his card. Lashley did manage to regain his senses and birdie the last to finish tied for fifth, only his third top-10 result since his breakthrough win in Detroit, but it was scant consolation having been in a great position to win.Watch the video above to see how it all went wrong for Nate Lashley on the 16th at Pebble Beach ... .

Arsenal’s new love story: Aubameyang the big winner as young playmakers leave Leeds in a daze
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Match statistics: Arsenal 4-2 Leeds United There was never any doubt. People may have debated about the supposed demise of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this season, but no-one at Arsenal believed for a second that their captain’s best days had been and gone.On Sunday, he gave a timely reminder to all of his doubters outside of north London that if he is given the chances in front of goal, he will take them.Aubameyang was at his lethal best against Leeds, scoring his first ever Premier League hat-trick as Arsenal bounced back from two successive defeats in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory.Mikel Arteta’s side were exceptional in the first half, with the attacking trio of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe ripping Marcelo Bielsa’s side to pieces with their pace and movement in the final third.This was Odegaard’s first start since his loan move from Real Madrid and he slotted in seamlessly in the No.10 role, with Saka and Smith Rowe either side.One of the main criticisms of Arsenal this season has centred around how static they have been when they go forward. A lack of movement and creativity has made them easy to play against.But for the first 45 minutes they were the exact opposite. Saka, Smith Rowe and Odegaard were exceptional and Leeds had no answer. Getty Images https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/GOAL/78/8f/pierre-emerick-aubameyang-arsenal-vs-leeds-premier-league-2020-21_1k970ex0jh61b1h0mjmgknfqxd.jpg?t=-1586370433&w=500&quality=80 It was a real throwback to the days of Arsene Wenger, when he would pack his midfield with players such as Samir Nasri, Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere, who in turn were given license to express themselves and supply the strikers.Aubameyang was the beneficiary here and he took full advantage, scoring twice in the first half and adding a third soon after half-time.The Gabon international now has 11 goals in 23 games this season. While that may not be up to his usual standards, for the majority of those appearances he was consistently starved of any meaningful service.Since December 16, however, he has scored seven goals in nine games, and with the likes of Saka, Smith Rowe and Odegaard behind him, he is starting to look as prolific as usual.He opened the scoring against Leeds with a classic Aubameyang goal, cutting in from the left and firing past Illan Meslier having been picked out by the excellent Granit Xhaka.The Gunners skipper then added a second from the penalty spot after the sensational Saka had picked Meslier’s pocket in the penalty area and been tripped by the hapless Leeds keeper.It was no more than Arsenal deserved and they closed out a dominant first half when Hector Bellerin got in on the act with a powerful drive following a wonderful team move to make it 3-0.Things got even better for the home side just two minutes into the second half when Smith Rowe’s fabulous cross picked out Aubameyang, who completed his hat-trick with a diving header at the back post. Getty https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/GOAL/36/aa/pierre-emerick-aubameyang-arsenal-2020-21_17rs24x9f48aw1d8r5x115sz65.jpg?t=-1585206625&w=500&quality=80 Leeds did threaten an unlikely comeback in the final half an hour thanks to goals from Pascal Strujik and Helder Costa, but by then the damage had been done, and the Gunners were unlucky not to extend then lead when Aubameyang crashed an effort against the post.The two goals they conceded will have disappointed Arteta, but the Arsenal boss will have been very excited by some of the attacking play his young playmakers served up.When Odegaard signed from Madrid, all the talk was about whether his arrival would stifle the development of Smith Rowe.Arteta was always adamant they could play together and they proved their manager right with a performance which points to an exciting end to the season for Arsenal.Sunday’s victory saw them move up to 10th in the Premier League and leaves them just six points behind Liverpool in fourth and five behind West Ham in sixth. The prospect of a European spot looked a distant dream a few days before Christmas, but Arteta’s side have been given a fighting chance with their improved performances since beating Chelsea on Boxing Day.Defeats against Wolves and Aston Villa showed there is still plenty of room for improvement at Arsenal, but there is no doubt they are on the right track again after some really difficult times during the first half of the season.And with Aubameyang getting back to his best and Saka, Smith Rowe and Odegaard behind him, Arteta’s side have every right to feel excited about what could be to come.

Michael Jordan “hooked on NASCAR,” excited about first race as team owner 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


NBA legend Michael Jordan played in more than 1,000 NBA games, but he’s rarely been as nervous as he was Sunday before the Daytona 500.It was the first race for Michael Jordan, NASCAR team owner. Jordan’s 23XI Racing made its debut Sunday in the Daytona 500, NASCAR's biggest race.“I’m nervous. I know I am going to be nervous, and I have two winners here,” Michael Jordan said in a pre-race interview with Fox’s Michael Strahan. “It’s a different type of nervous. When I’m on the court, I can go rebound, I can go shoot, I can play defense. Here, all I can do is cheer.”Michael Jordan formed his new team last year with active NASCAR star Denny Hamlin, who has won 44 NASCAR Cup Series races with Joe Gibbs Racing. The team, which has technical support from Gibbs, hired African-American driver Bubba Wallace as the team’s first driver.Michael Jordan, Hamlin and Wallace sat down with Strahan for a special interview that aired on Fox’s pre-race show prior to the Daytona 500.“I’m excited, I’m nervous … but I think when we get ready to play a big game, we can be nervous but we are in control,” Jordan told Strahan, who played in the NFL.Also Read: Ryan Newman says he's lucky to be alive after 2020 crashHow did Michael Jordan become a team owner?Michael Jordan, who has six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and is widely regarded as the best player in NBA history, revealed that he has been a NASCAR fan his whole career. “My father used to pack the whole family and we’d go to Darlington, we’d go to Rockingham, we’d go to Charlotte, we came down to Daytona and Talladega, and we would go and spend the whole day,” Jordan said on Fox. “From that point on, I’ve been hooked on NASCAR.”Michael Jordan said he decided to become a NASCAR team owner because there were no black team owners in the sport.“I have thought about it so many different times because I had never seen a black car owner or someone of color who really owned their team or could dictate what happens with their team,” Jordan said. “We hadn’t really been dominant in this sport, but the opportunity had never been presented.”According to Fox, Wallace had not actually met Michael Jordan until the Fox interview with Strahan. He said he was thrilled, however, to hear from Jordan after agreeing to drive for the team."I got 60 to 75 text messages after we announced that night,” Wallace said. “And I got about 10 unknown numbers, and then I get one and I am reading the message and at the bottom it said MJ. I said … ah, awesome. Michael Jordan just texted me, this is cool.”Also Read: Early Daytona crash takes out 16 carsThough Wallace has never won a NASCAR Cup Series race, Hamlin and Jordan both agreed he was the right choice for the new 23XI team. Bubba Wallace climbs into his car prior to the Daytona 500. Photo/Getty Images“He was the guy we were going to go after right away,” Hamlin said. “He (Jordan) believed in Bubba’s talent. He was the guy we wanted to build this program around.”“I think he presents a great opportunity, not just as an African-American but in terms of his talent, someone who aspires to be good. All we have to do is support him,” Jordan said. While Hamlin just wants the new team to improve throughout the season, Jordan expects to win.“I feel like he knows how to win,” Jordan said of Wallace. “He’s got the talent. We would not have invested in him and picked him if he didn’t have the talent to win. By the end of the year, I think he is going to have the opportunity and probably will win at least a couple of races. If it’s more, I will be elated.”Michael Jordan, who also owns the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, plans to be at the track as much as possible.“If I’m not there physically, you can believe I’m there mentally,” he said.

Nicky the Vest Becomes Runhappy’s First Stakes Winner With Gander Romp
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Nicky the Vest, an impressive debut winner in December at Aqueduct, proved that no effort was no fluke with an authoritative romp in the New York-bred Gander S. Sunday at the Big A, becoming the first black-type winner for Claiborne Farm's Runhappy (by Super Saver) in the process. Unveiled as an 11-2 proposition against Empire-bred foes over track and trip Dec. 18, the $110,000 OBS October grad shook off some early pace pressure and kicked away to a 3 1/4-length score. Hammered late to go off as the clear favorite here, the bay badgered frontrunning Lobsta through splits of :23.61 and :47.17 and poked his head in front passing the three-furlong pole. Creeping clear approaching the lane, he made a break for it three-sixteenths out and never faced an anxious moment from there, cruising home under wraps as a much-the-best winner. Lobsta, a full-brother to 2020 Gander winner Chowda, did well to hold the place in a three-way photo. “We were very pleased with him. He trained that way leading up to it and it's always nice to see what you're seeing in the morning replicated in the afternoon,” said winning trainer Jonathan Thomas. “We felt we needed to get him out of there. His stamina is a key strength of his and we didn't want to get him in behind horses and have him take dirt. That's an unknown variable with him. We didn't want to do that today, so we planned on being aggressive.” Asked about a potential start in the GIII Gotham S. Mar. 6 at Aqueduct, Thomas added, “Because we gave him 60 days between his maiden win and this start, I'd feel comfortable we could contemplate that. But we'll leave that up to the team.” Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.

Premier League Review – Gameweek #24
By admin | | 0 Comments |

At the start of the weekend, it was still all to play for in the Premier League as Liverpool were looking to solidify a place in the top three and put pressure on leaders Manchester City. By late on Saturday evening, the gap between last year’s top two was 13 points in favour of The Citizens, and a procession for Pep Guardiola’s side looks more than likely.With other big sides such as Leicester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all in action, who got the better of their opponents and which sides will be looking over their shoulders?Let’s take a look back at the action.Leicester City 3-1 LiverpoolA comprehensive defeat for Liverpool in the end, but a game where the result was in serious question until the last ten minutes of the match.The first half was largely forgettable from the neutral supporter’s point of view, save for Jamie Vardy spurning a couple of chances that the former Fleetwood Town man would usually finish with ease. The second half began very much in the same style as the first, Liverpool dominating the ball but creating little, with The Foxes happy to attack on the counter.With two-thirds of the game gone, the game burst to life, however, as Mo Salah scored from an exquisite Roberto Firmino drag-back in the box, Leicester’s resolute defence pried open in a crucial period of the game. Liverpool had to hold their lead for a little over 20 minutes but would take seven to simply fall apart.Leicester’s equaliser ironically came from a decision that they might easily have felt went against them, a penalty not being awarded but VAR revealing the challenge was outside the area and warranted only a free kick. Leicester’s James Maddison scored from the set piece, however, the ball evading everyone to nestle in the bottom corner.Three minutes later, the game had been turned on its head. Leicester’s Youri Tielemans put a floating ball into a dangerous area, but both defender Ozan Kabak and goalkeeper Alisson should have cleared but instead got in each other’s way to allow Jamie Vardy to run the ball into an empty net with glee. Four minutes more and the game was in the bag, Harvey Barnes on the breakaway coolly slotting home to condemn Liverpool to a third defeat on the bounce and the loss of their hard-won title now surely confirmed too.Manchester City 3-0 Tottenham HotspurJose Mourinho’s Spurs lost 3-0 to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in what was a clear victory for the champions elect.Seven points clear with a game in hand after their 23rd game of the season, it is hard to see anyone other than Guardiola’s side winning the Premier League this season, and in truth this is down to other sides and their failure to hit consistency rather than a stellar season from the Catalan’s side.At the start of the season, City began sluggishly, and were well beaten by both Leicester City and Saturday’s opponents Tottenham in a run of form that saw many disparage the Manchester side. There was no such insult flying around the Etihad Stadium before kick-off as city again swept aside a potentially dangerous opponent with the manner of champions.Ilkay Gundogan was behind many great moves for the league leaders and scored two goals and created another by going down for an early penalty, letting his leg trail into the path of Pierre-Emile Hojberg and drawing the foul like a meandering magician. City took full advantage, opening the scoring with glee and perhaps a dash of relief after seeing Tottenham striker Harry Kane smack the ball against the post in the minutes leading up to the goal. The second half was a procession, and it will no doubt infuriate Mourinho that he was unable to push his team to more action up the pitch, but in turning to late substitutes Dele Alli and Gareth Bale, he is like a poker player who has shown his hand, and City had predicted exactly how the Portuguese would play it.City march on, but Spurs look in freefall and if they don’t beat City to win the EFL Cup in April, Mourinho may be looking at having to win the Europa League to save his job.Gameweek 24 English Premier League Results:Leicester City 3-1 LiverpoolCrystal Palace 0-3 BurnleyManchester City 3-0 Tottenham HotspurBrighton & Hove Albion 0-0 Aston VillaSouthampton 1-2 Wolverhampton WanderersWest Bromwich Albion 1-1 Manchester UnitedArsenal 4-2 Leeds UnitedEverton 0-2 Fulham

Spieth: I’ll end up on top soon
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Jordan Spieth shakes off another disappointing final day and remains excited by his progress as he goes into next week's Genesis Invitational "as confident as I've been in a long time" By Keith Jackson Last Updated: 15/02/21 2:05am 5:00 Jordan Spieth's long wait for another win goes on after a disappointing final day at Pebble Beach, but he vowed to continue his recent resurgence at Riviera next week. Jordan Spieth's long wait for another win goes on after a disappointing final day at Pebble Beach, but he vowed to continue his recent resurgence at Riviera next week. Jordan Spieth vowed to "end up on top" as he reflected on being unable to convert a 54-hole lead into victory for the second week running on the PGA Tour. Spieth's three-and-a-half year wait for his 12th professional victory continues following a second erratic final round performance of the month, closing with a 70 at Pebble Beach to finish tied for third, and three shots behind champion Daniel Berger.The three-time major champion went into the final day with a two-shot advantage over the field, and he made a confident start with a birdie at the second before a wayward drive at the third ended in an awkward lie in a bunker to the right of the fairway. Spieth's bogey at the 14th ended his challenge at Pebble Beach It was the first of a few bad breaks for the 27-year-old, who also faltered on the final day in Phoenix last week when a closing 72 left him two strokes adrift of Brooks Koepka.Despite still not being at his best, the former world No 1 dug deep to stay within a shot of the lead after a birdie at the 10th, but his race was run after a bogey-six at the long 14th, with a birdie-birdie finish giving him the consolation of a podium finish.Spieth remains encouraged by his recent resurgence, having slipped as low as 92nd in the world rankings after missing the cut at Torrey Pines, and he believes he can continue his progress next week in the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club, a classic layout he described as "arguably my favourite golf course in the world". Get the best prices and book a round at one of 1,700 courses across the UK & Ireland "It's not mental. I'm as confident as I've been in a long time," said Spieth. "Not only the current outlook but also looking forward. So it's still mechanics, that's still dragging on."I made some really, really good swings this week under pressure and I made some not so good swings under pressure and there were more good ones than there were last week."So as I go into next week at arguably my favourite golf course in the world, at Riviera, I look to have more swings that I know are getting into position, hitting the spots I know that I can kind of turn and burn from than I had this week. Spieth has held the 54-hole lead two weeks running "If I look back at Friday night in San Diego and you tell me I was going to share the 54 and have the 54-hole lead two weeks in a row and really just fight, finish strong to both weeks, I would have said you're crazy, to be honest. "I was not in a great head space following that missed cut there and just did some really phenomenal work from Sunday through Wednesday of last week that was probably the best period of a few days of work that I've put in in a long time."It just got me believing in what I was doing and progressing forward. That's really what I continue to say is just progressing forward and if I put myself in the position of leading after 54 holes enough times, especially with how I know I'm going to fight even if it's not going my way, I'll end up on top one of these days."

All Signs Pointing To EDGE Rusher for Vikings at No. 14
By admin | | 0 Comments |

The 2021 NFL Draft occurs in less than seven weeks, and the Minnesota Vikings will rely on its draft class in 2021 more so than other years. Due to Minnesota’s already-finicky salary cap standing and the NFL presumably slashing budgets because of coronavirus fallout, rookie players will require immediate involvement for the 2021 Vikings.  The Vikings have pressing roster to holes to patch. ProFootballNetwork released a mock draft this week, authored by Nick Farabaugh, and Minnesota is on tap to select a defensive end with its 14th overall pick – Kwity Paye of Michigan. On Paye, Farabaugh writes: “The Vikings’ defense is a hot mess. However, they have been at their best when they can trust their pass rushers to get to the quarterback. Outside of Danielle Hunter, however, there are just a bunch of guys at edge rusher in Minnesota. Kwity Paye comes in and gives the Vikings a high-upside type of guy with explosiveness and a growing repertoire of moves, despite lacking the ideal length.” Also this week, CBS Sports dropped a mock draft of its own. Josh Edwards of CBS sends Gregory Rousseau of Miami (FL) to Minnesota: “Minnesota needs to replenish the talent on their team. Until they address the unstable cap situation, their growth will be hamstrung. Gregory Rousseau is the Everson Griffen replacement that the team had hoped Yannick Ngakoue would be.” For now, the stars are aligning for a defensive end to the Vikings, and that should be applauded.  The Need The Vikings had the NFL’s worst pass rush during 2020 per Pro Football Focus.  Ben Linsey of PFF notes on the Vikings 2020 pass rush: “The Vikings lost their starting edge tandem from the 2019 season of Danielle Hunter (to injury) and Everson Griffen (to free agency), and they struggled to replace that production in 2020. The only player on the team with more than 25 pressures was Ifeadi Odenigbo (42), and their team pressure rate of 21.6% ranked dead last over the course of the regular season. That was just part of the story for a Minnesota defense that parted ways with many of their starters this past offseason.” When a Mike Zimmer-coached football team is last via pass rush, something is wrong. Very, very wrong. While it is accurate that the returns of Danielle Hunter and Michael Pierce will substantially aid the defensive line, quarterback pressure is rapidly becoming a prerequisite for Super Bowl champions. So – the more the merrier. Look at what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did to Boy Wonder Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl LV.  Kwity Paye or Gregory Rousseau would get the Vikings closer to pass-rushing supremacy.  Natural Blend of Need and Best Player Available A defensive rusher like Paye or Rousseau falling into general manager Rick Spielman’s lap checks two important draft philosophy boxes. The selection of either man does not compel the Vikings to “reach” for a need with the 14th pick. Why? Because Paye and Rousseau, for now, are theorized to be that damn good.  And guess what? Minnesota needs a defensive end. Ifeadi Odenigbo might return to his late-2019 form when he went on a marvelous run opposite Hunter. But that is a gamble that leaves a lot of 2021 game-planning to chance. Of course, Paye or Rousseau could be terrible, but the two undeniably have a higher ceiling than Odengibo.  Hunter-Paye or Hunter-Rousseau will create more long-term fear in opponents than Hunter-Odenigbo. With Odenigbo, one can reasonably be excited if he tallies about seven sacks because of the expectation of his ability. Paye and Rousseau should, in time, register Hunter-like numbers in sacking quarterbacks.  EDGE in Round 1 is Overdue If national punditry is correct, Minnesota selecting a defensive end at No. 14 will be nostalgic. The Vikings have not chosen a first-round defensive end since 2005. It was the same year wideout Troy Williamson was regrettably plucked from the 1st Round and the same season that Daunte Culpepper’s career unceremoniously concluded in Minnesota.  At pick No. 18 of the 2005 NFL Draft, Minnesota tapped Erasmus James from Wisconsin for pass-rushing services. He started a total of 12 games in his tiny NFL career and tallied five total sacks. Perhaps this is why Minnesota imposed an at-least 15-year drought on choosing EDGE rushers in the 1st Round. James was a bust.  The Vikings also were emphatically not a defensive team in 2005. Mike Zimmer was a defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys at the time. Now, he’s the defense-always-first head coach for the Vikings. A Spielman-Zimmer joint selection of Paye or Rousseau should be significantly more profitable than James’ bust-worthy performance.

Seven final poker quotes to inspire you
By admin | | 0 Comments |

When it’s played right, poker should inspire everyone at the table, win or lose. Of course it’s nice to walk away from the felt a winner, but it shouldn’t define your mood. If it does, maybe you’re in the wrong game.Better a rye smile and a few funny words than anything is our motto and it’s with that spirit in mind that we present to you seven final quotes from the great game to inspire your own week at the felt.Let’s get the lesson on!1. “People would be surprised to know how much I learned about prayer from playing poker.”Mary Austin makes the surprise call about a player’s beliefs at the poker table. Have you ever been all-in against an opponent and they’ve called upon ‘The Poker Gods’ to save them despite veering between only agnostic or downright atheist? This isn’t uncommon in real life, actually. In times of peril, many people will summon a higher power for help having previously never believed. We think any God might be quite busy saving the starving and hungry to assist in preventing that one-outer landing on the river, but what do we know?2. “If you play bridge badly you make your partner suffer, but if you play poker badly you make everybody happy.”Joe Laurie Jr. hits the nail on the head, as in poker it really is you against the world. If the world wins, then they want you back at the table as soon as possible. If you win, well you’re happy. It sounds like the easiest thing to be a winner at poker, but it is of course, very difficult. Getting to know how your table (and in microcosm, the poker world) plays, is of course, key. There’s no way around playing at the felt to do this, so stay sharp by staying at the table.3. “Even Jesus wouldn’t bet all of his chips on a Jack-three.”Phil Gordon is inclined to believe that Jesus would have been tight-aggressive or at the very least tight-passive and who are we to disagree. What would Jesus’ favourite hands be? Well it’s hard to look past the son of God set-mining with the cowboys in order to get three kings – that would be the Jesus play. It’s unlikely he’d even call the flop with pocket sixes for fear of landing the hand of the devil – 666.4. “I was tired, a little the worse for drink, jet lagged and light-headed – four out of four conditions in which one should certainly not play poker in Las Vegas.”There aren’t many people we respect more in poker than Anthony Holden, who is better health than he has enjoyed recently, spoke to us way back in 2012 at the inaugural IFP poker event at the Rotunda in London.If you haven’t read Anthony Holdens seminal poker book Big Deal, then read our review of it right here and make it your next poker purchase – it’s wonderful.5. “Baseball is like a poker game. Nobody wants to quit when he’s losing; nobody wants you to quit when you’re ahead.”Jackie Robinson is bang right about one of the most important things to remember about playing poker and quitting while you’re ahead. No-one wins forever in poker, but those who learn to walk away from the table with profit on a consistent basis win the long game. In the end, the only battle is with yourself.6. “Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.”Steven Wright with one of the funniest lines about poker ever written. Just the visualization of a home game with Tarot cards is enough to make us chuckle, but if you get tired of poker, you can always look at our article we published over Christmas which talks about other card games you might like to play. 7. “The next best thing about gambling and winning is gambling and losing.”Nick ‘The Greek’ Dandalos had an appetite for gambling that was insatiable and he knew that win or lose, if you’re taking part, you’re enjoying it to some extent. Poker is like that and if you’re in a chair, virtual or otherwise, you can have fun.If you’re playing poker tonight, then enjoy it! It’s enormous fun and should be enjoyed whenever you sit down to play. We hope that you’ve loved this look at some of the best quotes from the world of poker as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.
