Crying at the table to high jinks where players "lose it" seem of little value to the flow of the game.
Taking their chips allows me to placade my feelings of frustration.
What does the professional do to deal with the "noise"?

I usually don't have the chat open , and am multi-tabling (cascade-view), so i only notice it when someone happens to say something when that particular table is on focus.
On the rare occasion smack-talk is happening, I ignore it. If it's "bad" though (rascism, begging, ...) , Ill just call a PokerStars-mod, who'll come instantly, copy-pasta his 3 phrases (something like "Hi, I am XXX ; a poker stars mod, please keep the chat clean and respectfull, have fun at the tables" . That usually calms down everybody for the rest of the tourney .

Apart from that, I just deal with it, and be happy to get chips donated to me ^^

Hello OrderMore,

Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline. Here's a short video about PSO and what it has to offer you. Also check out >>This Page<< for more info.

Personally I very rarely focus on table chat. Most of the time I am multi-tabling and don't even notice it but when I do notice I try not to pay too much attention and just keep my eye on the play. However if a player is clearly on tilt and ranting in the chat it's always good to keep that in mind as often it will lead to them making mistakes. But don't get dragged into the drama, just play your game.
