What’s the Best Image?

Like so many other things, it depends on the situation. Consider all the issues and options, and then select a credible image that will produce the best results in this situation “The idea is to match your image to the game you are playing so that you can manipulate your opponents, allowing you to win more money.”

Winners’ Laws

1. Create the image that gives you the biggest edge in this situation, not the one that makes you most comfortable.

Remember the winners who deliberately look like bullies, drunks, or dummies. They sacrifice their ego and comfort to increase their profits. Learn which image gives you the biggest edge; then, create it.

2. Make sure that your image is credible.

If people don’t believe it, you’ll seem phony and encourage opponents to study you. As Groucho Marx put it: “Sincerity is everything. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”

3. Base your image on a realistic assessment of yourself and your situation.

Don’t try to project an image that won’t be credible. Understand and work within your own and your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. For example, some smart players would see right through some of the ploys suggested earlier.
