Poker Movie Quiz: First Lesson of Poker

You all know the funny scene from Ocean's Eleven where Brad Pitt's character is teaching the game to a bunch of clueless young actors. But do you remember Rusty Ryan's 'first lesson'?

Question 3

What is ‘the first lesson of poker’ according to Rusty Ryan in Ocean’s 11?

A. This is a poker game. You can’t serve food with more than one syllable.

B. Every time you play a hand of you poker you wanna run through a mental check list. Head Position Hand Position Neck Position Breathing Posture. More than 25 items. It's a lot. And that's why I've come up with a handy mnemonic device. Just one word: HPHPNPBPECMSPAMDCPAFTSTTL. It's easy.

C. Leave emotion at the door.

D. In poker you never play your hand...you play the man across from you.
