Darwinism, Poker, Life (Part I)

Chops here.

Darwinevolve_2Great article on the individualistic, self-reliant nature of poker today in Nashville's daily newspaper The Tennessean. Writer Ray Waddle, on poker, states:

It's life stripped down to brute elements of conflict, risk and payoff. You're forced to play the cards dealt to you by fate. It's a way to test character and confront an opponent face-to-face. It rewards skill, guts, stamina, ingenuity, bluff and raw nerves....In poker, everyone fends for herself and himself. Winner take all. Survival of the fittest. That's a national motto, too.
I made many similar points in my first hold'em article--which we'll update and get up on the site later today.
