Can you imagine what it must be like to play basketball against Shaq? How do you get past this huge, powerful guy that towers above you and could just use his brute strength to crush you, in one go? Check out ShaqAttaq.net for info on the big guy, photo gallery and videos of him doing what he does best.
But seriously, my point is actually about not being intimidated at the poker table. There are many well known poker players out there that have risen to the top through their aggressive poker play. These sharks cruise the poker rooms and bully their way to bigger bankrolls. Aggressive play can totally freak players out, that they just freeze – which is just what I would do if I bumped into Shaq by mistake… I would watch my whole life play out in a matter of seconds, stammer an apology and run for it!
Don’t get pushed around on the poker table. If you know you have a good hand with a chance of winning, stand up and fight! – don’t run for the nearest exit.
