Puggy Pearson Quotes

Hall of Famer and WSOP main event world champ.
“I’ll play any man from any land, any game he can name, for any amount he can count…provided I like it.”

“Ain’t only three things to gambling; knowing the 60-40 end of the proposition, money management and knowing yourself.”

“Losing is like smoking, it’s habit forming.”

“The real things to know is that folks will stand to lose more than they will to win. That’s the most important percentage there is. I mean, if they lose, they’re willing’ to lose everything. If they win, they’re usually satisfied to win enough to pay for dinner and a show. The best gambler’s know that.”
