re: Poker & Am over-reacting?
Actually according to WSOP
rules and WPT rules it is illegal to state specifically what your hand is, it is NOT illegal to state that you have a good hand or a bad hand before making a call or an all in.
So if you honestly tell the table during a hand that you are playing "I have A, 6" then you are breaking the rules of collusion, but if you just say I have crap and am gonna go all in on it it is perfectly legal.
And some of the tables I have sat at for Freerolls get more pissed off by people hitting the sit out button then people who announce they have crap and go all in leading to a BINGO style play. It varies from table to table and game to game and I usually take my cues on it from the players I am with. I make alot of notes on players on tables at full tilt since they have that color coding system and a place to write notes and have over 160 people from the past two weeks coded and noted including some of the things they bitch about.
