how I play my cards. They are MY cards and MY chips. If you don't like it leave. But hurling insults from the safety of a keyboard is chicken manure.

I don't know who this is directed to, but I agree totally with your message here.

Joe,
We've seen this debate many times already here, and I see it everyday in the poker room. The ego is a fragile thing, and when you insult ones ego by not playing the way they think you should...they have a hard time controlling their tongue/fingers. The only thing you can do, is ignore it. If you comment, it just "feeds" it. The longer they play the game, the more they will realize, that you're never going to get things to go your way all the time, and getting beat by "rags" or a "miracle card" or whatever is going to happen more times than you can count. If you insist on getting upset every time this happens, you'll be depleting your bankroll by spending the money on blood pressure medicine.
When I'm playing with their money...then I'll play the way they tell me to...but until then......

Your damn right it is your business Joe and that is a fact!! :x
I do gotta say that in the past month I have seen more insults said at the table then ever before. I play alot of hours and I have seen this over and over again. I see them leave the table with insults :evil: then go into another room and make sure that everyone there knows that their ppAs or whatever just got drawn out, with more added insults. I don't know what they're talking about because I don't know about you Joe, but I have never had my ppAs drawn out, have you? :roll: :roll: :roll:
What Pokergoddess said about these kind of threads, they do go on and on so just play WHATEVER YOU DAMN WELL FEEL, IN WHATEVER WAY YOU WANT. Some of these sore losers, had better learn to be good losers, if they want to survive in this game of Poker, is all I got to say.

I LOVE IT WHEN THEY'RE SQUEELING, DON'T YOU????

Hey Joe,

the best response to hurled/typed insults:

"I'm sorry, what did you just say? I didn't hear you as I was stacking your chips."

In my office we have a name for rude, obnoxious people and list their names on the bullitin board in the break room. The list is called the "TB" list. That's short for "turkey butt". Maybe we need a TB list in the forum.

I very seldom respond to such comments at the table.

I also believe that PSO is not as friendly as it was a year ago. And online poker in general is not as friendly and enjoyable as RL play.

Joe,

If they're whining, then you're doing something right!! I want my opponents to be thrown off their game, though I consider angle-shooting and other such offences contemptible. If my play isn't good enough, then I richly deserve to fail!!

Trumpinjoe:
I'm glad you have noticed that the friendliness here has diminished a lot since a year ago. : I have my thoughts as to why, but I will maybe open a can of worms if I state them. I gotta say there is about 20 players here that make a game much more enjoyable. They are the ones who will give you some encouragement without putting ya down or ridiculing you. There is a way to tell someone something, and there is a way of telling someone something. IMHO I also think since there was a posting here in the forum re: saying the words, NH or GB, and wondering why people use those terms when the hand was'nt a NH, was read by a fair amount of players, it seems that now it's hardly said, and myself personally when I ever said that to someone, weather the person had a crappy hand and won or whatever, I meant it, just as it says NH. To me if it wins, it turned out to be a NH. Just little things like that. Friendliness was one of the #1 things here and it is like most businesses the #1 thing that keeps you going back. Ooooooops :roll: I was'nt going to state what I think, OH well I said it. There is also a lot of sarcasam : too, and I will use, no I won't use any names, but I see some getting made fun of, put down, called names, it is terrible :x . On one occassion I even asked why? and I then was callled names, and put down. Now why is this happening? Like who in hell do these people think they are?
I'm sure they don't conduct themselves like that in a Casino or a Card room.
Keep playing Trumpinjoe and PLAY WHAT YOU DAMN WELL WANT, AND BE NICE TO ALL, I try to be, but get made fun of for that too.

And another thing: It is impolite to speak of someone who is at the table in the third person. I was at a table when Samz was just killing some of the guys. They would say to me 'why does he play that way' or 'why does he do that?' And I said, "It's impolite to talk about someone who is sitting at the table, calling him 'he' and if you want to know why he played those cards, ASK HIM.'

I do contended that the defeated have bought the right to complain, cry, wail, etc. (and hopefully they will), but there is no place to be impolite. Those whose aces get cracked-- lost--one hand. People who expect me to play like they want me to are in serious (as serious as I can dish out) trouble.

Lafem and I were watching Samz dismantling a group of freesiders the other day, it really was quite amazing. Lafem said to Samz: 'nh' to which he replied (ever heard him speak?): 'I guess I got lucky'. Lafem said "You played perfectly" (Then there was a group hug )

Point: No room to be impolite to anyone. Not to those you may respect and might like, or to those whom you may not.

My mileage must vary a lot. Maybe I don't play as frequently or at the same time of day as you guys who experience this problem. But I cannot recall the last chat experience that bothered me or seemd inappropriate and which caused any controversy. PSO seems as friendly as always to me. I don't get it.

I have to agree with Wiscer, I have not noticed any inappropiate chat at the games I have played. However I don't play as much as most members do. I find PSO to be much much friendlier than the cardrooms here in California. There is almost always someone whining and berating other players in the casino's. And I see very little of that here.

At least no one throws their cards at the dealer here at PSO.

My wife's aunt considers this the height of rudeness (shes British ). If you refer to someone in the room as he/she, she will look at you and say, "she is the cat's mother." I have no idea what this means or how it is supposed to put you in your place, but it is funny. Perhaps you could respond with that at the table.

yes, I have. I've seen too many remarks about some other person's play. and recently, I saw one of the most crude, even vulgar, remarks I've seen since PSO started. when the vulgar remark was
made there was a lady at the table (no names on any of this) anyway
the lady made a nice enough objection to his language. he then insulted her.

after that, I did something I have never done before. I reported it.
BUT, never heard where my complaint was received, acted upon, or what.

so who knows

Well, I am just a bad poker player.

Keep insulting my play and I think I'll run out and buy me a book (possibly written by Phil Hellmuth). Ooops....I'm not so sure he has many books out, I think maybe he likes money and doesn't want to share it with me too badly.

Anyways, maybe I'll get a book from one of those great players who for some reason need to supplement their income. Guess I'll read some TJ. (All joking aside my favorite mentor)

I'm hoping my new found skills will save me the embarrassment and heartburn of having to deal with the poker lectures that are routinely thrown at me at the tables. Of course I know the insults are only provided to help make me not such a bad poker player anymore.

There is this thing called "Dead Money" in tournaments. That is the money generally donated by entrants who have very little chance of finishing in the money. If it weren't for dead money I'd have no money at all. Unfortunately, I cannot routinely recoup the majority of my entry fees against fields consisting of only top players. I like Dead Money cause it is my friend.

In a ring game it is no different. Game selection may be one of the greatest instruments in a players toolkit. Personally, that player that sometimes has nine racks piled up to his chin is almost certainly welcome in my game. The risk that two of my racks end up under that same chin is well worth it since the majority of times I might actually win a rack or three.

And, know going in that my Aces, Kings or whatever are gonna have to hold up against 52o for me to win those racks. If they don't hold up, I will gracifully fume under the hood and think all those things that I wanna say...but won't. (Why...because I want my chips back)

Oh, heck I just convinced myself that poker is not for me (I can't understand a darn thing in this Super/System book)...I quit. You guys/gals are gonna miss my donations at the table. Don't fret I'm sure you'll will have no problem rounding up chips from the likes of jmuzzey, FreddieBoy, Hukilau, geezer, pspitalnic, gator(pick one) etc...

I'll be over here playing roulette where I know my money's welcome!

The voices in my head hurt. Gotta stop for now.

Later,
Wendell
