|1:35||Robbie: Session #1 was the birthday home game with good friends, had the birthday rungood. Second-biggest winner in a five-hour, eight-player session. Losing out on money that you could’ve won (i.e., failure to bet and maximize value) is no less a mistake than making bad calls or other bad plays.|

Observing the difference in playing full ring game vs. short-handed when it’s a home game; one of them just being the absolute amount of money in play (i.e., it’s less, pretty much by definition). If you always lose when you go all-in, should you always just leave one chip behind to change the momentum and confuse the poker gods?|
