– If you have no move, Mr Thompson, you do nothing.

– All the more reason for patience. I’ve made my living, Mr Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make 20 bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months in fact, when I don’t make a bet at all because there simply is no play. So I wait, plan, marshal my resources. And when I finally see an opportunity, and there is a bet to make, I bet it all.
