re: Poker & Chat & Online Poker
"Do you chat on poker with your opponents ?" Yes.
"do you distract them?" No.
"Is chatting a strategy of on line poker???" Maybe.
It's a quick way to tell who the regs are, who are the newbies, who's possibly tilting and who's fishy. Sometimes what they post in chat can give you an insight into how they're thinking, or even if they're thinking at all.
"for what raisons do you chat on poker? ?" Mainly to be sociable. Poker isn't just a game of strategy, it's also a game of public relations. You should want to keep your players feeling good, especially about losing to you. You can do that live and on-line, the latter via chat.
