Of foul language, crazy antics, blabber mouths, all-in monsters, bad etiquette and other weird poker behaviors.

im sure everyone has encountered weird, crazy, outright BAD poker behavior. If you've played long enough, you will encounter every single type of player, from proper, quiet, well mannered ones to the crazy, noisy, rude Muthafuckas!

There are people who have no idea what poker etiquette is. They react on flops when they hit something they folded, act out of turn, dont pay attention to the game, delay the game, take forever to FOLD, and some even look at cards that you already folded!

There are also whiners, complainers, people who blame the cards, people who say "why did you play that!" "wow you are so lucky!" "i should have won this hand but i folded!" and the like. some people even blame the dealers for bad cards.

Then there's the kind of player who cant help but scream, curse, react violently, and the like. They will react like that no matter if they WIN a big pot, or LOSE a big pot. Theyll curse at the cards, scream for a card, shout, shriek, celebrate, whatever!some might even say things they regret afterwards hehe, *wink wink*

there are the blabber mouths who just WONT STOP talking, analyzing your hand, etc. Another kind we all loathe are the know-it-all poker players who have been playing for a month or two, won several home games, and think they are ready to "go pro". " after they lose a pot they'll say "i knew you had pocket kings!" and things like that. makes me wanna ask them if theyre psychic or something. They knew you had kings but they still called! hehehe. crazy.

i've probably been guilty of some of those offenses hehehe (maybe all of us at one time or another), but that's the beauty of the game, it really is a microcosm of life in the sense that your'e gonna encounter people like that ANYWHERE, not just on the table. If you can deal with these kinds of people on the poker table, you'll have no problem with them in real life.

the best way to deal with them? kick their asses. No not at the parking lot, at the tables! hehehe!

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
