All in


Description: The ongoing dilemma of the no limit, hold'em, poker player. This picture tries to capture the troubled mind of a poker player; the devil on one side encouraging him to risk all; the angel on the other side encouraging him to play safe. 

Having been playing poker for a year or so, I now have some sympathy with the challenge. Do you go All IN ?
