Online Thread Terminology
I was just reading through some hand analysis both here and other sites. I've noticed this before and kinda always wondered why people call themselves "Hero" and whoever plays the hand all the way through "Villain." I just always imagine some anime sequence where someone's yelling "I will bet 1/2 the pot because I believe my hand will defeat yours" and "I will call for I do not believe your hand will dominate my hand in the end." Maybe some floating at showdown. It's just a pretty funny mental image to me when someone is showing basically they hit trips on flop but someone else chased a flush.
Just curious if anyone knows where these came from or why these words seem to be the norm.
