i know my stats are not good i know i never made the top 100 in the pso and i beleave these are 2 main reasons that some people not all consider me a bad player,also coming from canada is a down fall as people have called me an automatic donkey because im canadian,so when i play poker here weather its a pso game an mtt a sng or a cash game i get ppl calling me with with hands like 4,8 suited preflop against my pocket kings and the 4,8suited out flops me with the results off either losing almost all my stack or knocking me out off the tournament,so i guess the skill in the game is being able to get your 4,8suited to out flop my pocket kings takes more skill then for me to push my pocket kings knowing its the best,i guess for the reason that i wont call an all in with a hand like 4,8 suited will mean that i will never have skill or talent in this game

Make them pay to see your monster hand
You go in the pot with the best hand and get them to call knowing you are miles ahead is , imo, the right play , although saying that not every big hand is gonna win 100% of the time but they will win a lot more times than they lose
Keep on shoving and playing them monster aggressively

Being Canadian I get no sense whatsoever of a dislike, at least not because of ~being~ Canadian.


Being called a donk, idiot, pidor(whatever that means) is pretty normal around here. Don't sweat it.
!!

One recent example for me...At a cash ring table sitting six....

Two pair on board after the river. Based on what I had seen from the one fella, I did not believe he had hit any of it. Based on that, I call his sizable (too large) river bet with ace high. Turns out he had nothing and I won the pot, with my ace kicker. Maybe a dumb call but it was my read that got me there.

He wailed on me, calling me everything one can at a poker table.

I typed back to him that my read was correct, sorry about your luck and your bluff was called....You lose!!

Dont worry about what others say at the table...it is irrelevant. Play your game and continue to learn. It will pay off in the end.

first of all i don't understand the whol fussss about being or not being canadian!! we all play poker right

my experience is that the most of the name calling players just suck in their game and just blame everyone.

now i am learning and also learning the hard way but what i see is people who play bingo hands with 84s and win get al sort of nh and vnh and thinks like great play. it makes them cocky. but when u wipe them of the table they start name calling if u beat them with 89s and u can call cheap in a family pot with T76 rainbow flop.

they just don't know better, they see it on television etc

just keep playing and i hope we can cross tables once so i can judge ur play!! i am still a fast learning fish by the way lol

Of course Canadians are good at poker. If you don't play hockey or dog-sled, what else ya' gonna do during the 10 months of winter?

Hang in there Ron! Like the others suggested, don't worry what the others are saying. If they call you a donk or whatever, you can take it as a badge of honor, or know that if they think this, you'll be sure to bag 'em when it counts.

If it ever really starts to bug ya'..turn off that chat.

Geeese lighten up a bit Ronh, your gonna need to grow some thicker skin if you want to survive in this game. If i was to take on board everything that was said about me on the tables and forums I would of quit the day after i started. Such is life in the on-line poker world that people you don't no or will never meet will take advantage of another players persona and may use in-dignified tactics to tilt other players in a number of ways, whether it be there avatar, were there from or how they might play. You need to deflect such tactics to progress on-line or remove your chat box as soon as you get seated if it gets you so up-beat. The table is a battle ground and before you enter it you should put on your armoury because not every one out there is as nice as pie Please Ronh let your next thread be a happy one

Seriously though...

There is an old saying:

"One to one, the harsh words of others can never wound you."

Either something someone says about you is "true", and it bears your consideration, and helps you to change for the better, OR...

It is un-true and as such should be beneath your notice.

Simply have confidence enough in yourself to know which is which, and act appropriately.

If you type in NH or VNH or something along those lines to these morons, Yes it does make them cocky. That is what you want. If they remain cocky they will continue to make those same or worse mistakes. Giving you the opportunity to suck up their chips with your premium hands.

Well ronh I would tend to think that the players calling you with hands like 84 aren't doing it because they think YOU'RE a bad player but are doing it because THEY are bad players.

As to the peeps thinking that you're a donk because you're Canadian that's something you'll just have to get used to as it's a common stigma for being from the same country as effsea.
