Anger Management ? - Tue Dec 04, 2012, 05:00 PM

Hi I'm fairly new to the poker school but have been playing poker live and online for a long time. One thing I hate about the game is the abuse you get from other players when you give them a bad beat or knock them out of a tourney (they even keep on going on about it as an observer from the rail once knocked out)
I will like EVERY POKER PLAYER will try to steal pots and get lucky, call out of position and win, go all in on a draw and hit !!! That's poker isn't it ?
Call me a DONK if you want, but don't insult my intelligence or my family or my status in life cos you lose a hand to me.
Some things that are said are very hurtful and insulting, even if it is done by an anonymous person.
I seriously think some people here should have anger management classes ? and maybe people who read this will recognize certain people who this applies too ?
Is there ? like in a live venue any way of getting the people who do this suspended for a while or a yellow card system to stop this behavior ?
Next time I may well try and copy and paste the convo (not sure if I can do it) and if there is a route to report it I will.
Remember everyone gets bad beats, close the table click on lobby and find a another game, don't give it the "big I am" how dare you beat me.
See you at the tables and if I knock you out or get lucky remember that is poker and you have the same luck too.
Maybe a general reminder of behavior towards other players from the people who run the school would not go amiss ?

Hi EngelsNick,

I completely agree with you, a little bit of courtesy and manners goes a long way in this world.

If it happens at a PokerStars table and you are unhappy call one of the chat moderators.

If it happened in the PSO Home Game club please send me the Hand History chat via PM only and I will investigate.

I quickly got fed up with it,shortly after joining.
I find no benefit to it,anyways,and long ago decided to just shut down the annoying popups,and turn chat off.
They can say whatever they want now.
Of course,if I ever final table a significent tournament,I might turn it on for the chance at making a deal,if I'm so lucky!

Also there's the option to right-click on their avatar and hide their chat.

If they want to chat away to themselves that's fine

i find being called out for a "bad play" to be funny as hell, as most people doing so are usually the ones who need lessons, and just because they don't understand a play i made, doesn't necessarily make it donkish or stupid or me a moron or,me a fish or ,or, etc. and you know what? sometimes i do make bad plays that go amazingly right. sh** happens in poker. i find i catch more flies with honey than vinegar. when someone sucks out or makes a play i find stupid or whatever i make a point of saying nice hand so they're more likely to continue to make those bad decisions the next time we meet up. mr. Caro says just root for your opponent to win when they got it in bad against you. that way if they do suck out you were rooting for the winner and when they don't suck out, you get the consolation prize..... the pot. works for me.


May the tinfoil protect you. MT

Yep being called a Donk, fish, moron etc is part of the game. I smile if I make a bluff (not often ) laugh when I see people winning with A 2 os after raising under the gun when I have K K , calling for backdoor straight draws / flushes and getting there when I've made 2 pairs ect.
Its just the out of order stuff that gets my goat! I had 1 guy (not in a poker school game) give out loads of personal abuse at me (and others) that happened to beat him ? I don't think he was Phil Ivey so why did he act like he was one of the best poker players ever ? and think I should never of contested the hands he was in ?
I like the chat to be on because you can make "friends" and as has previously been said congratulate people on making a good call, fold, raise, saying what cards they were playing ect so the chat is not always negative,
While playing in the PCA survivor tourny I kept being put on the same table as the same person every time the next stage was played, so we had a laugh and a joke as well as the odd bit of FRIENDLY abuse, I finished 43rd in the Weekly Final he went on to win it and is off to the Caribbean lucky bugger. but through chatting on those occasions next time we meet up I'm sure we'll "chat" again.
So have a laugh, keep it friendly, I'll keep the chat on just to keep up with how people talk about hands / and how / what they are playing.
I know its not nice to loose (especially money) BUT remember everyone gets lucky !! and you will not play good poker if your on TILT !!
Good luck at the tables to all

Hi allforeli,

Welcome to the Pokerschoolonline. Here is an overview of the site that will help you get to know the place a bit better.

When you do get sucked out on try not to be so results orientated, remember that you got your money in good and in the long term that play will make you money.

Good luck at the tables

Oliver.
