Poker Etiquette

Poker Etiquette

With the explosion of poker tournaments on television, get beginners games maybe at the wrong impression of what is considered good behavior at the poker tables, considered. These unofficial rules apply to both traditional card rooms and online pages.

Do not run for seat

As its director has taught you in school: do not run. It is considered bad manners to storm to a place when someone goes bankrupt. Let the lads at least at first, with a little semblance of dignity, leave the card room. In winter, the guy may go out first to his car to warm up, so take the time to look us whether he really has left the building.

Online has a similar concept when a fish blows up. At one time, players can in the rest position not press the “auto post” button fast enough.’s Sudden exit is probably not as online a big problem, because there are a lot of players in cyberspace., It lets you but still like a “moron” look to the expression of Daniel Negreanu to use.

Do not interrupt the dealer

The dealers have a job that is hard enough. You have to make do with drunks, keep the game going and listen to a lot of crap from the players. It is not the fault of the dealer that a runner-runner has led them to lose a monster pot. Many casinos have nowadays anyway automatic card shuffler, so specify the machine’s fault.

And even more stupid comments, there are online to see “This is __________ for you!” (Include their favorite online page one). Was an error in the random number generator which was used by several pages, but the problem has been resolved years ago. A page now uses the “thermal, random background noise of a zener diode” for their algorithm – I’m not a quantum physicist, but that sounds even sexy. I doubt that a hacker is the crack soon.

Do not give lessons at the table

If you start talking about the fact that you had “15 outs” or make “betting for value”, maybe some players at the table have no idea what you are talking. It is in their best interest as a player to keep these enemies in the dark. After a few free lessons like this one, God forbid, they go out and buy a book or two. Do not let their egos get the upper hand by announcing the world how much poker skills you have.

One of the best investments I have ever made was “Fast Teddy” to donate a breakfast after a night lap was broken apart. I was an imaginary child at this time, but Teddy was there for several years. He left me this pearl to think: “Would you like that these guys are clever, so that they can take away your money?”

No ribs

It’s amazing in a way that casinos even have roast ribs on their menu. You know, those greasy little fat snacks that are perfect for smudging cards. Chicken wings are just as bad. I’m always on guard when a player to order the BBQ Wings always shining and never ordered a bowl of soup.

They would also like to keep an eye on a player who has the long, pointed fingernails and pretends to be a classical guitarist. The fact that he is wearing a Hooters T-shirt under his checkered jacket may be an indication that this type with these nails, the card slots. Ask them to spell it “Feliciano” and you might get the answer you seek.

Only English at the tables

This may sound as if it were an ethnically weighted hint, but there are some good reasons to enforce this rule. If you sit at a table and two online players speak Danish to each other, there is a chance that you will be the “meat in the sandwich,” said said.

I remember there was a short-lived club in the city, in the back of a Greek restaurants. Although I have some snapped over the years to Greek (much, many words start with M and end with A), I would not necessarily say that I speak this language fluently.

In this club in any case it was not only allowed to speak Greek, conversations in Greek were allowed during the hand! I waive such a game, thank you!

Its a polite loser

Watch the old hands. You have plugged many bad beats and have gotten a little luck, so that it no longer bothers both. Just as it is a gross mistake to hit a cut shot straight in billiard, it is to curse a big faux pas in a casino. I remember to have played at the Bellagio and have sworn off the record, after I had lost a hand. I thought it was barely audible, but the dealer said quietly, “Do not do that again, sir, or you will be asked to leave.”

I was shocked by many pages about the penalty, but I gave the dealer the male skull-down-nonverbal nod as a signal that I had heard what he had said. To be called On the one hand “Sir” is extremely rare in the mortgage lending and secondly swearing was almost mandatory in poker clubs.

And if you have just been knocked out of a tournament, you shake the hand of the winner and at least go with a polite “Good luck to them all,” with really so little sarcasm as possible.

Want to be a lovable winner

In my opinion this is where the television has a negative impact on poker. I know that there are millions of dollars to bring in the big tournaments but to see people who throw your fists in the air and bathe in the crowd after they have won a hand is a bad example of how to behave at these tables.

This is not the NFL – make it like the Canadian squat player, bring the puck into the net and keep the celebrations at a minimum. That may be easy for me to say because I never at a final table at a WSOP event was, but be adorable when you win the checks of other players.

Do not make in any case, what I’ve done once in an Omaha split game in a club: I sat at the end and the guy looked at his hand for a while and called. I showed my cards, he looked a little more and put his hand eventually wear out. Curiosity has overwhelmed me and I asked him to be able to see the maps of type (we had no rule that a hand was dead automatically when it was discarded).

It turned out that as I had a better flush (had my ass not the same color of my Bicycle), I sort of gave him half the pot. I’ve never done that again – the point is to just take the money, you can look forward and do not fret the other type in which you want to see his hand.

Follow these unofficial rules, the next time you play poker. Your game is perhaps a little better through them. Now go and grab it yourself!
