I ahve a few people who I now have 1000's of hands on, and I never chat.
Today I had a guy who I have about 4500 hands on. He is pretty decent, and we have a history of trying to trap each other with sets, I have stacked his AA and he mine. We pretty much stay out of each others way, and we get into battles over the fish now and then.
Today I was BTN and he was SB. I had AA, folds to me, I 3x, he 9x, I make it 2:50 (10nl) and he calls. Flop some crap. He checks, I bet pot, he shoves, I call. He will c/r his sets and c/r on a bluff. He has to be as worried about sets here as I am, as we tread lightly vs each other (normally) with only TP. He flips over AA.......
So I gave a LOL in chat ( I really NEVER chat) He loled back, and I have never seen him chat before.. I said its about time to say hi after so many hands. He says he had his KK vs KK pre about 15 minutes ago. So we exchange a few kind words and then I 3 bet his EP raise on another table he folds and that was that. lol.
I have a few players I respect and see a lot. I was just wondering if anyone ever gets acquainted with regs they play a lot.
