Power Players NEVER gamble unless they can afford to lose.
Think of it like Vegas. Never put it all on black unless you can afford to go home empty handed. Gambling is incredibly alluring and very sexy but it simply isn’t so if losing will wipe you out.
Power Players always, always, always know the odds. Bemoaning a losing hand (after the fact) is a waste of words. Not to mention humiliating.
Power Players never play Big Man on Campus without absolutely knowing they will win. Not hoping or assuming they will win but an absolute guarantee they will win.
