Weird bets driving me crazy...
I don't know about everyone else out there, but man, do I HATE it when people raise "71" or "99" or "113" for no apparent reason. I can see it when they split before and got an odd chip they want to even there stack, but when people do it willy-nilly, wow it gets in my head. Which actualy is making me start to bet in a similar way... I mean if its making me mad and getting into my head, its gotta be working on other people, so why not?
I'm wondering if this really affects anyone else, if you see it, how often, have you tried it and noticed a difference in the game of the people your playing? I know that, as angry as it makes me, it also seems that I don't call these raises at all pre-flop, simply to keep my stack nice and orderly (and yes, I know that I'm OCDish here). I will still raise it up, but make sure that when I do raise its to something divisibil by 5 .
