How Poker Taught Me To Make More Money With Fewer Stocks [reprint]



By Amy Calistri
June 13, 2013

On June 7, I watched the Internet video feed from Las Vegas as Mike “The Mouth” Matusow pocketed $266,503 by winning the 13th event in the 2013 World Series of Poker.

Matusow has won nearly $9 million playing tournament poker, and I’ve studied nearly every hand he has ever played. I even sat next to his mother the night he won $1 million in the Championship Event of the 2005 World Series of Poker.

During his recent tournament, Matusow seldom had the lead. But he played a disciplined game. He folded many hands while his opponents wasted chips, chasing after hands they didn’t have the odds to win. Matusow’s patience and premium hand selection over the course of the three-day event were rewarded with the first-prize gold bracelet.

I’ve played poker for more than a decade. I’ve had the opportunity to study — and go up against — some of the best professionals in the world. I’ve seen players amass big leads in a tournament, only to turn right around and give every chip back. In my experience, both as a poker player and an investor, the decision to not play a mediocre hand can be the most profitable decision you can make.

It’s easy to spot an inexperienced player at a poker table. He’ll be the guy who plays nearly every hand. He’s probably grown up watching televised poker, where folded hands are edited out to highlight the relatively few contested hands. In his limited view, he believes by playing more hands, he has more chances to win. He has no idea how many hands he’ll lose before he gets lucky.

I want this guy at my table for as long as his money lasts.

P.A.L. Guests Strike Gold in Early WSOP Events

Everyone involved in the poker world – players media, officials and fans – have waited patiently for the World Series of Poker to get here, and now, they have to wait no longer. As a media person who hosts some of the greats of the game on the podcasts, I’ve developed friendships among these players. (Well, maybe “friendships” is a little strong, but they’ve certainly have become my acquaintances.)

As a result, I now have many players to cheer on as they all chase poker’s holy grail: a WSOP bracelet. Basically, if they were on my show, I’m probably sweating them on the internet rail. (Everyone except Todd Brunson, that is.)

So far, with three events in the books, things are off to a great start for Poker Action Line guests. With my dual roles as radio talk host and monthly columnist for Ante Up Magazine, I follow the exploits of the South Florida players (after all, I am the “South Florida Ambassador for the mag), and I didn’t have to wait long for one of South Florida’s most popular players,  Darryll Fish, to come through. Fish, who coincidentally was Ante Up’s POY in 2011, reached the final table in the $5K Event #2, and despite being the small stack, finished in 3rd place and cashed for $215K. Darryll has been on the show a couple of times, and I wrote a column about him and his life at last year’s WSOP, so we’ll have plenty to discuss when he comes back on after the summer is over. (The high finish was especially gratifying for me to watch as Fish has a disastrous summer in 2012, with only 2 min-cashes to show for an entire summer at the Vegas felt.)

Before that, Chad Holloway won a bracelet in the opener, the Casino Employee’s Event , and while a lot of players don’t pay much attention to it, the victory was extremely popular among the media (check out the post below). Chad writes for Poker News and is the Wisconsin Ambassador for Ante Up, and he came up and introduced himself to me when I was at the Rio last year. We had a couple of nice conversations, and he later appeared on Poker Action Line – he writes many of the table updates/hand descriptions and is extremely knowledgeable about the game, and obviously, a great player as well.

Since then, a few other past guests have made deep runs (Amanda Musameci was 71st in Event #3, while Matt Salsberg was 21st and Maurice Hawkins 36th in Event #4), so I feel like this is going to be fun to watch this summer. With online poker just around the corner, and some participation in Fantasy Poker, I can’t wait to check out the chip counts and view the final table streams on a daily basis.

Hope you’ll join me for the ride on Poker Action Line.
