The biggest bluff starts and ends in the same place.

Luck is where this book starts and ends.
It’s not the luck of Las Vegas, no it’s not the luck of the WSOP – the world series of poker, no, it’s the luck we know as life.
2. Articles you might have missed

How does the opinion of others genuinely influence your decisions?
Our self-talk, the words you use to mull over thoughts, sets the tone for how you think, decide and act. Pause, take a moment and reflect upon the impact of the words you use. Think about those words—are they downbeat, or are they positive, fluffy, or definitive?
