LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK - POKER FRIENDS ETIQUETTE
Ok everyone. Please give me your opinions on the matter as this is important to me and I couldn't find anyting on it online.
This is in regards to the unofficial rules of friends etiquette, if there even is one.
I went to a casino with a friend, and we got seated at the same table (which will not happen again). He lost a lot of money, and most of it to me. He was upset about few of the hands, so I wanted to get your opinions on it.
First, what is your opinion on friends etiquette at a table, and do you have on???
There are two hands that I would like to get your opinions on. I have A-8 suited, I raise preflop and get called. I had 90 dollars before the hand started. After the flop, I had 30 dollars committed to the pot, my friend goes all in after the flop, and I flop my flush draw tih the nuts. I call. There are also 2 other peopel in the hand, so there were 4 players total. I played pot odds
. My friend says that I shouldn't have called since its against friends etiquette. What do you guys think???
There was another hand, where I had a Q-10, I already had 10 dollars in the pot, my friend goes all in with 23, with 2 other peopel ALSO playing, I called the extra 13 and won.
My friend was upset that I would call hoping to catch my draw to bust him out, and again call him to bust hiim out with my Q-10 in a different hand.
When we ever went heads up, I checked it down, no matter what I had, and I NEVER reraised him the night, but only played my cards the way I would have against anybody else if there were more than just us in the pot.
Basically my friend says that I shouldn't be playing pot odds
against friends, and that its against friend etiquette and was upset. I honestly didn't think I did anything wrong, and he did. I'm trying to figure it out.
What do you guys think of the situation or just overall on the subject of how to play friends at a casino table....in regards to checking down, reraising, pot odds, and how this would change between heads up or with more people playing.
Thanks for you input.
