The original context was where I recommended calling the 3-bet and said "With five players you'll probably lose the hand, but the goal is to win money, not hands." That's a way of saying "Some people would balk at playing this hand because the odds of winning are so small, but you shouldn't consider whether you're likely to win a hand, but rather, whether the play is profitable, even if it only rarely succeeds."For me, I'm trying to win every hand I'm in and I'm also trying to maximize profit. Obviously there are plays which are profitable where you're not favored, but... duh.
And, yes, it's kind of a duh concept, but of course there are lots of players who don't understand concepts like this. Not that I think either you or Krish or anyone else in this thread needs that explained; I was simply commenting on a PAHWM and going through my thought process out loud.
