"If General Patton were a poker player, he might have uttered John Vorhaus' very words: 'Don't challenge strong players, challenge weak ones. That's what they're there for.'" -from the foreword by Lou Krieger
It's time to put your cards on the table by manipulating, pressuring, misleading, outthinking, and outfoxing your opponents. (Then you can cheerfully take their money and go home.) Get a Killer attitude and walk away a winner.
