 By the way when I say suited connectors I am talking about hands like J♥T♥, T♣9♣, 9♦8♦, 8♠7♠ and so on. These types of hands have a lot of potential in No Limit Hold'em to win a big pot.

Poker is the ultimate game of mental warfare. Because it doesn't matter how good you are, you will get humbled by this game sooner or later. In fact, I don't care if your name is Daniel Negreau or Phil Ivey, you will get humbled again and again and again by this game.
