You're joking right? Because of the goofy avatars you don't play much on Fulltilt? Why don't you just turn them off then?
I've jumped from avatar to avatar but try to pick one that is fairly 'neutral',... in other words >> one that doesn't indicate or lead to a perception of what my playing style might be (I've actually read some articles regarding 'online tells
' and there was a section about 'avatars'... and also one that was specific to Fulltilt avatar selection... ie. the avatar with the slicked 'Elvis-like' do... is often selected by Lag-type players... there is some merit to this.. check it out... also.. the 'Doberman'... overly aggressive spewy-type players... <<< these aren't my own personal findings but were actually the results of some research done... pretty boring stuff, lol.. but does have some merit in some cases, albeit minute at best).
I tend to pick the same avatar that some of the top MTT players I notice are using (it's no accident that I use same avatar as AJKHoosier1, NEONPILS, da_professional, titantom,... LOL ).
I actually don't mind the avatars on Fulltilt... far better than the stuff you see on Titan or Doyles.
