Gambling card games jerk

Postby Doujas В» 06.11.2019

.

There is a guy at this casino named Nick, that I am very tempted to call him Dick the rest of the post, but I'll refrain for my younger readers.

Anyway, Nick is a local. He plays there everyday while seemingly doing his job while at the table, meaning he's on the telephone multiple times a day talking about contracting or something. When he isn't talking to somebody on the phone he is usually whining about how bad he is running, or how so and so is a bad player.

He tells them straight up what he has and that he'll check it down. When he folds a hand he shows it to his friend sitting next to him, despite the "show one show all rule.

So, hopefully that sets a little backdrop for Nick. Yesterday he was in a hand against an old man in his 80's. All I knew about him is some others say he was the "sweetest man," and "has never said a bad word to anybody.

He gets into a hand with Nick. Old man makes a big raise, Nick makes the call thinking Old man is all in, so he flips his cards over. Old man also flips his cards over, meaning they were now playing their hands face up. Nice has Aces, Old man has Kings. Now this is where things get dicey. Flop is rags, say , Nick then says all in. As much as it pains me to admit, Old man says "Take it. However, he peels the turn card, and it's a king. Rick gives the pot to Old man, Nick actually says "good hand" and it's seemingly over.

Then 1. IT WAS 1. Nick starts asking Old man if he said "take it. So Nick starts going into the old man, saying "so, you are telling me you stole the pot. Again, I thought this issue was seemingly over.

It turns out not long after I leave Old man leaves who can blame him? Today I hear that Nick followed him out of the poker room and into the casino to ask him more about the hand. You're supposed to leave it in the poker room. I have a feeling this isn't the first time Nick has followed someone out of the room. He is a fairly big man, in his 50's, with beady little eyes that look a little crazy, so I'm sure intimidation is one of his goals.

Anyway, Old man says they shipped me the pot, that's that. Nick guilt's him more, but Old man leaves. An hour later Old man comes back with his wife. He finds Nick in the poker room and says "he won't be able to sleep at night" if they don't work it out. He asks what to do. Nick days I'd like my dollar pot back. Old man says no, but he'll chop it up.

That's what they agreed on. I hate to admit it, but if you are talking about the actual hand, Nick had a point. Why he decided to wait so long to say something, you got me. But to follow this man out of the poker room, call him a cheater, that is totally out of line, and I do not agree with that at all. Fast forward to today. Nick thinks we're buddies because I told him I heard Old man say "take it. However I said I could have taken it out of context, I didn't know if it was binding, etc.

Either way, I'm now one of Nick's "friends. He tells me that he told me before I raised him all in that he has a pair, meaning I should fold to him because he's being "nice. Also, just because he told me he had a pair didn't mean he did. I showed him A-K, and he goes off.

But he goes on for like five more hands, and I just got up and left despite wanting to play for another hour or so. I'm not sure I did the character of Nick enough justice, but he is a giant jerk.

I've heard at least three people say "he's the type that never shuts up" and "he's always complaining about something. But I am not looking forward to sitting at the table with him again, which is a weird feeling for me to have, but it's part of the reason I've written this blog.

Advice from those with a lot more experience playing live would be well appreciated. I know I have to get used to this type of stuff if I'm going to play a lot, but he was personally getting under my skin, and today I decided to leave. I don't know if that was a good "play" or not, but I also have to admit I will be apprehensive to see him again and honestly, I don't want him following me out of the poker room, because if he does that to old men what will he say to me, a young "punk" that plays A-K?

I play live everyday and encounter players much worse than Nick all the time. My answer involves a quick story. When I was a kid and walked home from school i'd pass a bunch of dogs that would bark-bark-bark. Mostly they were little dogs, but at the end of the block, there was a mastiff. It was so big, it would stand up and it's forelegs would just dangle over the fence. This dog could jump the fence whenever he wanted and kill me in a heart beat. But he didn't.

Likewise he never barked. He just chilled and did his thing. My takeaway from that is that when you are a big dog, you don't need to bark. You don't need to prove yourself because you are what you are. I see a lot of barking at the poker tables.

Players bark about how bad someone is, how good they are, why they made a good play, etc. But instead of being like the little dogs yap-yap-yapping and bark-bark-barking I try to be the big dog. I just sit there, play my cards, and let all the little dogs bark because they just don't matter. The thing that absolutely drives little dog A-holes crazy is apathy.

When you ignore them like they aren't even worth the time it takes to look at them, it drives them crazy. When they can't get under your skin, it kills them. The other day, I called down a maniac who had been bluffing all day. I had 99 and happened to hit a set on the turn and I ended up cracking his aces.

He then goes on a tirade about how i'm a donk. I'm stacking chips all the while saying, "Yep, i'm a donk. He didn't know how to respond and after a minute more of whining he just shut up. Once you truly internalize that the other players don't matter then you will find that they will be unable to rattle you. In fact, I get a perverse kinda joy pissing them off with my indifference. The madder they get, the calmer, more relaxed, and bored I get. Apathy and indifference is the way to go IMO.

I've yet to meet an A-hole that could handle my apathy. Thanks dgiharris, I started to employ this strategy of apathy, as when I got a laugh from the table when I said "I'm sorry" in a question sounding kind of way, like saying, what do you want me to say. I totally agree with you, this guy is just concerning for the fact he would chase an old man out of a poker room and guilt him in to paying him money back for something that was decided two hours ago.

I am just wondering how much farther he would go. I guess I just have to realize I'll have to put up with people like this if I want to play poker live, which I do. Originally Posted by Tragichero. That Nick guy just sounds like a jerk mate. Most likely he doesnt have the highest IQ but not always the case. I myself sometimes will neddle players because I know it will be giving me that extra edge, however I don't do it in a way thats going to make them go home crying, its just a bit of table banter.

I want my opponents to feel they are second best, both in their holdings and as a player. I know that this is getting slightly off topic but I think it goes back to the application of top poker pros being big gamblers Ivey, Brunson, Reese, Hansen, Ungar , however being a big gambler isnt nessacary going to make a good poker player. He sits down at his usual table demanding respect by showing cards, soft playing and having his little "click". He is taken out of his comfort zone when people like yourself play back at him AK etc.

In this pot with the old man there is no dispute, unless he calls the floor immediately. It sounds like it was a dealer error and I think the old man acted very noble in this case. Cliffs You have to remember to look out for yourself at all times. Mouthy, aggressive players will always be around. Being mental tough is key to being a good live player.

Continue reading will gladly offer you whatever aid I can. It leaves me games in the end because after all the work Uplift put into article source the decks and improving my gameplay I'm left unsatisfied and still searching to play more. My sponsor at the time I quit suggested to me that if something bothers me I should refrain from doing it. I last relapsed by googling the new Magic set online work, printing proxies at work, going to the store when I had other responsibilities, hiding where I was, spending money on credit cards, and lying to my wife.

Posting Rules. The click here now is AM. Yet, here my rationalization sets in that right now it's excusable to be playing magic again because In this pot with the old man there is no dispute, unless he calls the floor immediately.
