Manipulating people is what's so fun about poker. I love that you can just look into someone's eyes and lie - and it's perfectly acceptable.

I enjoy going out by myself... always have, always will. I don't have security guards, and, for the most part, I enjoy meeting new people.

Poker has the feeling of a sport, but you don't have to do push-ups.
The principal reason for the universe's poker face is that its constituents are far away. Stars careen through space, and galaxies spin at speeds thousands of times faster than a jet plane.

If you're playing a poker game and you look around the table and and can't tell who the sucker is, it's you.

Yes, I think poker really isn't gambling.
It's a great battle, and it really is a battle, and there are people from all walks of life, you know, never judge anybody at the table: A man can be the greatest poker player and he might know all the numbers, but he might get beaten by a really savvy kid who works in a grocery store; and that's what's so great about this game.
My favorite hobby is being alone. I like to be alone. I also like dancing, fishing, playing poker sometimes and vegetable gardening - corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, I have a big garden every year.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
