The Real Truth as Proclaimed by Hoy.
1. Lawyering requires logic
2. Risk analysis allows me to make speculative calls when impled odds allow.
3. Aggression is important (ex. Jordan, LJ and Hoy may be 3 biggest aggros at any table)
4. Bluffing - Lawyers don't really lie it is more a matter of hiding the truth when it suits the greater goal.
5. Reading People is required in contract negotiation and litigation. It is why lawyers never get their money in bad live.
