The answer to you title is that nobody in their right mind would say maniacs are bad for the game. A true maniac, although often frustrating, is not a profitable player, and their losses have to go somewhere.

Welcome aboard Syd,

I have another name for maniacs -- ATM

Their motto should be "Chips to burn, get 'em while they're hot!"

Good decisions,


Joe

Hey, thanks for the warm welcome everyone. And yea this was the Open League. I have never been much of a MTT player so when I first started these Open League tourneys I was quite frustrated with these sort of players. But a quick adjustment to my game and I'm sitting at like 329 with 2040 points. Even had a 35th place finish in one of them which I was very excited about. Anyway, thanks again everyone and sorry for the post in the wrong forum.

This is the important part to remember when dealng with Mr Maniac, tighten up.

The problems with maniacs at the table is that 1 or 2 is an excellent number, more than that quickly becomes a nightmare. You can exploit a fish or two but not a whole school of them.

Good Decisions,

Joe

Hey all,

Just remembered another saying I heard somewhere about maniacs & fish.

One or two fish at a table is a gold mine, more than that is a mine field!

Good Decisions,


Joe
