Life plays like poker - rarely do you have a lock on the hands that are crucial. There is no certainty, only varying degrees of probability, and even the best hands get bad-beat. Oh yes, try and try you can, season after season, until that fateful game that you've already invested so much in lures you to give more than you own, and then breaks you. Then you realize that not only is the season done, but that there are no more seasons for you.
