NH and TY
Is it annoying that I start every post with "Hi all"?
Reading through this thread I'm not even sure why it's here, look at the big picture, it's about playing poker. If you let the chat bother you that much and what people are saying it's going to affect your play no?
wsorbust said it best, it's something that's said intentionally or unintentionally which should hardly even be noticed, just like my "hi all" every post.
Bottom line is a nice hand is actually a nice hand, some use it that way some don't, i've hit 4 of a kind and no-one said a word, played another table and got 3 "nh's" for 2 pair. It's just a small thing in the world of poker.
Personally I will say nh after a bad beat to let the opponent know i'm not about to go on tilt because of it.
Good luck all (oops is that annoying too?)
