Mike Sexton once asked Chip Reese, “The guys you play against are tough. What separates you from them?” Chip replied, “You’re right Mike. They are tough. In fact, when they play their ‘A’ game, I’m really no better than they are. The difference is that they also have a ‘C’ and ‘D’ game, whereas I don’t. They become weak players when they steam and just about all of them do. My edge is that I don’t steam.” (Life’s a Gamble, D&B 2016).
